Description Bryce Nesbitt 2006-09-18 22:52:31 EDT
The file I CAN change to affect the firewall:

# cat /etc/sysconfig/system-config-securitylevel

And the one that is USED:

# cat /etc/sysconfig/iptables
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p 50 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p 51 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p udp --dport 5353 -d -j ACCEPT

Differ.  Firewall configuration is tricky -- and you don't want to leave unknown
services enabled.  I'm concerned that "extra" ports are left enabled in the
default configuration.

I think that system-config-securitylevel should either open exactly the ports in
/etc/sysconfig/system-config-securitylevel, or at least document WHERE the
additional port holes are sourced from.

Documentation in general would help... what's the format of
/etc/sysconfig/system-config-securitylevel ? Can I use it to restrict at
particular port opening to an IP address range?  Or is it limited to what I see?
