Description Seth Heckard 2000-10-03 02:56:44 UTC
S08ipchains starts before S10network.  if you change S08 to S11ipchains so
that it starts after network, it reverts back to S08ipchains after a

Comment 1 Seth Vidal 2000-10-03 03:28:26 UTC
ipchains are supposed to start before the network - so you have NO time of a
potential break-in occuring (ie: the time b/t the network coming up and ipchains
being setup)

this is normal on ALL Systems - if you're putting domain names in your ipchains
then you've made a mistake and need to re-think configuring them.

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-10-06 02:28:25 UTC
Seth is correct; setting up firewall rules after network interfaces come up (or
more importantly, after network services begin to be started) creates a small
window of opportunity which shouldn't exist.
