Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 217646
Custom Ports shouldn't only be displayed as listed in /etc/services
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:50 EST
Description of problem: Ports are used for lots of non-standard things not
defined in /etc/services. Some way to show the exact port forwarded in the
window would be helpful.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.2.27-1.x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open system-config-security-level
2. Forward some ports defined in /etc/services, say 7967 and 8021 (udp or tcp)
3. Close system-config-security-level
4. Open system-config-security-level
5. Decide that you don't want to forward port 8021 anymore and try to delete it.
Actual results: 'supercell' and 'intu-ec-svcdisc' are displayed and you need to
find out what port these apply to from /etc/services or google before deleting them.
Expected results: It should be easy to see the data you've entered and delete
the port, like it is before you close and reopen the window.
Additional info: Even worse, try forwarding 7932 (udp or tcp) and 7933 (udp or
tcp) and then reopening the window. They're displayed as the same name because
that's how they're defined in /etc/services, but who knows which is which?
Agreed on displaying more than just the string. I'll rework that table a little
bit to display both. However, 7932 and 7933 are not the same. 7932 is t2-drm,
and 7933 is t2-brm.
Er, woops, that's true. Either way, it's still an opaque and obscure way of
hiding the data you've entered, so thanks for the acknowledgement.
Fixed in rawhide in package system-config-firewall, which replaces
