Description Hil 2005-09-09 13:18:05 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.4; Linux 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4; X11; i686) KHTML/3.4.2 (like Gecko)

Description of problem:
I executed system-config-securitylevel and add "10080:tcp" to the "other port" 
field. I clicked on "OK" to save the settings. I restarted 
system-config-securitylevel and "10080:tcp" became "amanda:tcp". I added 
",10021:tcp" to "other port". I clicked on "OK" to save the settings. I could 
not start system-config-securitylevel anymore. Here was the error message from 
the console: 
Traceback (most recent call last): 
"/usr/share/system-config-securitylevel/system-config-securitylevel.py", line 
18, in ? 
  File "/usr/share/system-config-securitylevel/securitylevel.py", line 453, in 
  File "/usr/share/system-config-securitylevel/securitylevel.py", line 353, in 
    protoname = socket.getservbyport(int(service), protocol) 
socket.error: port/proto not found 
I edited /etc/sysconfig/system-config-securitylevel and removed the line 
"--port=10021:tcp". I could start system-config-securitylevel again. This bug 
does not exist in Fedora Core 3 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute system-config-securitylevel and add "10080:tcp" to the "other port"  
field. Click on "OK" to save the settings. 
2. Restart system-config-securitylevel and add ",10021:tcp" to "other port". 
Click on "OK" to save the settings. 
3. system-config-securitylevel can't be started anymore. 

Actual Results:  Fail to start system-config-securitylevel 

Expected Results:  Able to start system-config-securitylevel 

Additional info:

I suppose system-config-securitylevel does not take any port in "other port" 
field which does not have a name. 10080:tcp has a name amanda but 10021:tcp 
does not have a name. Having a port without a name causes 
system-config-securitylevel to fail to start.
Comment 1 Sergey Shevchenko 2005-10-21 11:25:42 EDT
A workaround is adding lines like
"servname     10080/tcp"
to the /etc/services

That solves the problem but system-config-securitylevel should take any port
number regardless of /etc/services.
