Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16070
firewalld doesn't respond to transient interfaces
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
I am running RH6.2, with linuxconf 1.19r2. The machine has two ethernet
interfaces, eth0 on the local network and eth1 connected to the Internet.
I am using the "firewalld" firewall daemon to manage the connection
through eth1. The machine also has a modem and can use ppp0 to connect to
When the firewall daemon was started, eth1 was up and ppp0 was down.
firewalld created a reasonable set of rules (verified with /sbin/ipchains -
L -v). After some time, eth1 went down. I shut down eth1 (/sbin/ifconfig
eth1 down) and started ppp0 (/sbin/ifconfig ppp0 up). The linuxconf
firewall daemon was still running, but never changed the rules. When I
went into linuxconf, to the properties page for the firewall daemon,
everything looked ok, and when linuxconf restarted the daemon, it created
a good set of rules for that configuration. However, after switching
interfaces back, firewalld again didn't recognize the change.
Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
