Firewall API - can someone shed some light on how this is supposed to work please?

Ok,

I have a dedi which I create some vm's on.

I purchase some new ip's and using the ovh manager create the firewall api.

For one of the ip's I have assigned to my VM (which I can access from the internet fine).

I then create the following rules using the manager:

1 Authorise TCP all eq 80 eq 80 Enabled
17 Refuse ICMP all Enabled
18 Refuse UDP all Enabled
19 Refuse TCP all

My understanding is that rule 1 should allow port 80 from any IP to my server because it is at a lower position to the 19 rule which refuses all TCP ports.

Unfortunately this is not the case because I am unable to access my website on the vm.

What is strange is if I add rule 0 as allow ICMP to my home IP address then I can ping my vm server fine.

Can someone please shed some light on how this is supposed to work please?
