Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-07-30 18:46:56 EDT
Description of problem:

/sbin/ifup has code fragments like that:

if iptables -L -n 2>/dev/null | LC_ALL=C grep -q RH-Lokkit-0-50-INPUT
; then

and more of other "RH-Lokkit" specific pieces.  The catch is that
the current /etc/sysconfig/iptables defines "RH-Firewall-1-INPUT"
chain and there is no "RH-Lokkit" around anymore.  Leftovers from
old times?  DNS still happens to work even if there are no port
53 specific holes punched through.

It's for old compatiblity; it's not needed for the current firewall.
