Description Harald Hoyer 2004-05-24 10:22:45 UTC
Description of problem:
IP forwarding is not turned on, if you select a low security level or
if you turn of the firewall.
Ordinary users don't know, that turning off the firewall also turns
off IP forwarding.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. turn on forwarding in /etc/sysctl.conf
2. turn off firewall  
3. no forwarding

I'm not seing this behaviour same nevr:

start with 0 in sysctl.conf (and run sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.conf)
enable firewall - turn on ssh
turn on ip_forward and confirm in /proc
disable firewall
check ip_forward still active and no change to sysctl.conf

Can you confirm that this still occurs for you as I've not been able
to reproduce here.

Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2004-11-04 14:53:29 UTC
Closing due to inactivity and could not replicate - please reopen if you can
still reproduce, etc
