Description Bruce A. Locke 2003-09-28 00:48:38 EDT
The name of the tool seems out of sync with what it is these days.  Perhaps it
should be renamed to just "Firewall"?

"Firewall" is a very popular term for non-technical users these days thanks to
recent security events and it may be "more user friendly" to use "Firewall".

Just an opinion :)
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2003-10-06 21:25:15 EDT
The tool is named the way it is because it isn't really a firewall tool. 
Originally, there was going to be a "redhat-config-firewall" tool that would
allow more fine-grained firewall configuration.  Deveopment on that tool was
delayed, restarted, and then delayed again.  Anyway, I'm going to leave the name
of redhat-config-securitylevel the way it is in the event that
redhat-config-firewall gets written one day.  :)
