Description Andrius Benokraitis 2004-11-04 21:51:12 UTC
With the release of NFSv4, would it make sense to add NFS as a checkbox option
for system-config-securitylevel, now that NFS is TCP enabled and has a
well-known TCP port (2049)? Although one can add it under "Other ports", I'm not
sure how "common" it is compared to the others in the list (WWW, FTP, SSH,
telnet, Mail).

NFS is a very popular protocol, but I don't know the significance of this issue
personally. I'm CC'ing steved (NFS developer) and pnasrat
(system-config-securitylevel developer) for their input as well...

Thanks! :-)

Looking at system-config-securitylevel again, would one want to have NFS as a
"trusted service"? I would think so, since NFSv4 now is routable, as well work
through firewalls.

I was getting confused because the listing of services is subtractive (DENY ALL,
ALLOW WWW, FTP, ...) to creating the firewall, as opposed to additive.

Would NFS be a relevant trusted service to allow firewalls to pass through?

I'd also like to see this, and in Fedora Core 5 or 6 as well

This will be in 1.6.23 in tomorrow's Rawhide tree.

Still some work to do.  See bug 203706.
