Comment 1 Thomas Woerner 2006-11-29 13:19:11 UTC
iptables is the userland config tool. The firewall rules are not provided by the
iptables package, they can be generated by anaconda and lokkit.

Please use system-config-securitylevel to generate a firewall configuration.

FOr the signature: Please open a bug against distribution for this.

Comment 2 Darwin H. Webb 2006-11-30 02:37:07 UTC
No, No, NO, you are off the facts.
Iptables are the firewall.
The iptables went from what is installed by the system to accept all and I din't
touch them.

Anancanonda is not going to generate the iptables after the fact.
(if this true, it a really secure secert. Please point to the documentation that
it occurs in.)

system-config-securitylevel, is only for seting extra ports not defining a
complete firewall. And if changed else where , this tool will actually wipe them

But hey, it is just a bug, not my bug, FC bug. Fix it or don't.


Comment 3 Darwin H. Webb 2006-11-30 14:45:01 UTC
Well, the updates of Nov 30th for rawhide fixed the iptables back to what they
usually are in the FW/Secuirty gui.
They also fixed the crash of iptables at bootup.

(and, unrelated, the cpufreq, and the missing machine id file)

So maybe FC6 updates will fix it too.
But I can't update those until tomorrow.
