step 3-1 in the first post of the thread copies the whole of IE6's Wine environment (ies4linux makes separate environments (WINEPREFIXes) for each IE it installs) to start your SBCG4AP environment.
if you've done that right, running IE6 from the SBCG4AP environment should act no differently whatsoever from running IE6 from the IE6 environment, regardless of any firewall settings.
just so we're sure, can you try these in turn:
- IE6 environment
env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.ies4linux/ie6 wine "C:/Program Files/Internet Explorer/IEXPLORE.EXE" google.com
- SBCG4AP environment
env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine_sbcg4ap wine "C:/Program Files/Internet Explorer/IEXPLORE.EXE" google.com
since you've told your SBCG4AP environment to use a virtual desktop, the only difference should be that the second runs in a window. a few other things are different (the things you set up in 3-5) but none of these should make a difference to IE.
if the first works (you can access the web) and the second doesn't, i can't think of any explanation except that you've done something wrong in the step i mentioned.
