IP forwarding turned off, if security level is off or firewall deactivated
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:43 EST
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):
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
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.
Closing due to inactivity and could not replicate - please reopen if you can
still reproduce, etc
