If you're okay with turning off the firewall, well, "problem solved" :)

If you want to add rules to let AFS work with the firewall still on, you
should allow:

port 7001 UDP inbound and outbound
port 7000, 7002, 7003, 7005, 7007 UDP outbound

and I think that should cover everything. I'm not sure how to do that in
yast off the top of my head, but there should be a way to allow specific
