system-config-securitylevel doesn't save other ports
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
system-config-securitylevel doesn't save "other ports" when they are added.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "system-config-securitylevel"
2. Select "Other ports" and add an additional port number
3. Click "apply" and then "ok"
4. Run "iptables -L" and see that the new port isn't there ?????
5. Run "system-config-securitylevel" and see that the port is now missing
The additional ports you add are never added to the current or future firewall
port(s) should be added to the currently iptables policy and also permanently
added to /etc/sysconfig/iptables
I'm having the same problem, and then it started not even asking if it was OK
(yes or no). So "Apply" has no effect, and "Okay" just closes the program. I'm
using the latest FC7.
Clumsy workaround: If one makes changes in "trusted services" (in addition to
making changes in "other ports") and click "Apply", the program saves both.
Then, of course, you can undo the change in "trusted services".
My version is Fedora 7 on x86_64; but I don't think this bug is
That did seem to work, but my system is a server already behind a firewall, and
because I can't get NFSv4 working (know of a good tutorial?), I'm using NFS
which likes to grab ports at random. Anyway, selecting "Disable" under Firewall
still has no effect.
I have the exact save issue with version system-config-securitylevel-1.7.0-1.fc7.
When I add ports to other ports that settings is not saved. Only when I change
something in the "Trusted Services" aswell does the tool save my other ports
I am using 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7 (32bit) so it does not seem to be architechture
specific like Felix assumed (sorry)
Does anyone have another suggestion?
