Firewall question

Hello! I recently got my own internet subscription and I am trying to configure the firewall. Now, I play an online game:
https://www.rumblegames.com/kingsroad/play

Every time I set my firewall to medium or high, I am unable to play. Is there a way for me to set the firewall to high (or at least medium) and still let the game load?

One thing I also noticed is that the logs show SYN flood entries. I read the entry in Wikipedia and it states this is a form of DoS? I'm still waiting to hear from the ISP and I figured I can do some checking on my own. Please advise.

ADD: I currently use a Mac btw (just switched from Xubuntu last month). Also, when I play the game, latency goes as high as 1900s+ but I am still able to stream without any difficulty. I tried using my neighbor's computer and I barely see any lag in the game, even though his connection is at 1mnps while I am at 2mbps.

Another which firewall question

HiI'm looking for a UTM to replace IPCop in our US branch office. IPCop seems to have network issues running virtualized on Hyper-V. On a weekly basis it drops access to the internal network and the only way to get it back is to run 'ifconfig eth0 down/up' to get it back. We have a cron job checking pings and on a fail automatically doing this but it's causing disruption. We also have a client requirement is to run IPS/IDS on network gateways. We could put in a physical box with IPCop and Snort ...

Firewall Question - IPTABLES

Hello and thanks for reading my post. I'm running an Ubuntu Server (Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS) on a 3.8.0-29 generic kernel (iptables v1.4.12). For a long time now I've been using iptables to limit (hitcount) connections on ports 21 and 110. Recently, I decided to limit connections on port 25. So, I decided to use the same iptables commands I used for ports 21 and 110 (which work perfectly) for port 25. To my surprise, for whatever reason iptables completely ignores the rules that I set up for por...
