Some rules are written EXTERNAL_NET -> HOME_NET and others HOME_NET -> EXTERNAL_NET

my $0.02 check out the 'questionable' alerts ... you may need to change the rule.

The New Testament offers the basis for modern computer coding theory,
in the form of an affirmation of the binary number system.
        But let your communication be Yea, yea; nay, nay: for
        whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
                -- Matthew 5:37
