After selecting to configure IP through DHCP the user should not be
allowed to use the 'strong' security option in the firewall step since
this one will not let pass DHCP requests. Another option would be to warn
the user about this and in case he confirms then use stong settings except
I believe DHCP is intended to be allowed through all class of firewalls offered.
Assigning to a developer.
The idea is that if you have an interface configured via DHCP, the installer
silently selects to allow DHCP behind your back.
Did you use the graphical or text installer?
No, because I am curious I selected strong security after selecting config
through DHCP. As foreseen the network card just waited for a DHCP reply who
never arrived. I then rebooted single user , deleted the rules from
/etc/sysctl/ipchains and this time it worked. So when you tell it to reject
anything coming through eth0 it drops DHCP too.
Um, maybe I misunderstood, but I still don't whether you used the graphical or
Iused the graphic installer
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
Fixed in anaconda, should be in the next build; if any interface is selected
to use DHCP, DHCP will be automatically punched through the firewall.
verified fix in qa0217.1 test tree ...
