Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 197751
"Security Level and Firewall" program forgets allowed ports
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 5
Yes, easily reproducible.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. For Firewall, choose "Other Ports", type in a TCP port in **NUMERICAL** form.
Look at /etc/sysconfig/iptables to confirm iptables rule
for that port was added.
2. Restart program.
3. Change the firewall port configuration, save changes.
4. Restart pogram.
5. It will forget the TCP port that was specified in numerical form.
That is, the port that should be allowed thru the firewall
will be blocked again. Look at /etc/sysconfig/iptables to confirm.
Program seems to re-read TCP port configuration
by port NAME but not by port NUMBER (??).
