Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 240791
Firewall settings are not saved
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
When I change something in the firewall settings (add a port, enable / disable)
and I press either Apply or OK, the settings are not persisted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Open system-config-securitylevel panel, disable firewall, click OK, open panel
again and it opens with 'Enabled'.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. System->Administration->Firewall and SELinux
2. Firewall: choose Disabled
3. Click OK
4. Again System->Administration->Firewall and SELinux
5. Observe 'Enabled'
- Observe 'Disabled'
(and have a disabled firewall :-) )
Workaround: system-config-securitylevel-tui does allow port changes.
I can confirm this problem in Fedora 7 (Moonshine). Another workaround is to add
the "Other port" you need and then check and uncheck one of the predefined
service ports. Then you are finally asked if you want to save the config.
confirmed, workarounds work.
I can also confirm this in Fedora 7 (Moonshine)
bug 240869 and bug 236175 seem to be duplicates.
