Description Stef Walter 2014-05-06 11:56:16 UTC
Description of problem:

Use of at_console="true" in the firewalld DBus policy file makes firewalld hard to use on servers, where users are logged in via ssh, or via Cockpit, but not at a console.

at_console="true" is a real old relic, that was never really implemented. Modern services should be using polkit.

NetworkManager moved away from it for the same reasons (want to be usable on servers): bug #979416

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


[stef@stef firewalld]$ git grep at_console
config/FirewallD.conf:  <policy at_console="true">
