Description rebel 1999-03-31 11:27:59 UTC
The files /etc/services and /etc/protocols are rather incomplete. Why not use the originally published by IANA?
Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-03-31 22:44:59 UTC
setup-1.9.2-2 and later contain complete /etc/services and /etc/protocols files.
Comment 2 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2002-07-08 23:17:05 UTC
We have since this was fixed in 1999 become out of sync with the official list again. Could we please have another update or even better have it generated automatically from <http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers> when the rpm is built? Having an up to date services file makes parsing firewall log files so much easier.
Comment 3 Jay Turner 2003-09-09 13:54:54 UTC
We again have discrepancies with setup-2.5.27-1.1.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2004-05-05 03:29:41 UTC
Cleaned up in 2.5.32-1.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2004-05-05 03:41:50 UTC
Deferred from 2.5.32-1

*** Bug 82104 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 7 Jeff Pitman 2005-04-12 09:08:53 UTC
Lot's of updates from November 2004, please ensure a new services file is in place for FC4. Service that I'm looking for in particular is OpenVPN on 1194.

This problem is scheduled to be resolved in a future major release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat does not currently plan to provide a resolution for this in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux update for currently deployed systems. With the goal of minimizing risk of change for deployed systems, and in response to customer and partner requirements, Red Hat takes a conservative approach when evaluating changes for inclusion in maintenance updates for currently deployed products. The primary objectives of update releases are to enable new hardware platform support and to resolve critical defects.
