Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 145089
uses source port 53/udp instead of high ports to query
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:58 EST
Description of problem:
The configuration NetworkManager creates for named forces the source
port for name service queries to 53/udp. This does not work with
braindead firewall people who believe 53/udp is only used for name
servers (not clients), this isn't a problem when using glibc as it
uses high ports as any other unprivileged application would. It would
be better if query-source was set to "query-source address * port *;"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
