Description John Keener 2001-03-23 16:23:50 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.73 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-3 i686)

On installation I selected the "medium" firewall option, and allowed
incoming ssh.  I have done this with both the text and the graphic
installation.  The chains that get setup are (ipchains -L -n):
Chain input (policy ACCEPT):
target     prot opt     source                destination           ports
ACCEPT     udp  ------             53 ->  
ACCEPT     udp  ------             53 ->  
ACCEPT     udp  ------             53 ->  
ACCEPT     tcp  -y----               * ->  
ACCEPT     all  ------               n/a
ACCEPT     all  ------               n/a
DENY       tcp  -y----               * ->  
DENY       tcp  -y----               * ->  
DENY       udp  ------               * ->  
DENY       udp  ------               * ->  
DENY       tcp  -y----               * ->  
DENY       tcp  -y----               * ->  
Chain forward (policy ACCEPT):
Chain output (policy ACCEPT):

Note the 'ACCEPT all' lines *before* any of the deny
items.  This accepts all incoming packets

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.perform install
2.choose "medium" firewall
3.allow ssh connects
(This is the only senario I have tested)

Actual Results:  see description.

Expected Results:  The chains should not be accepting all packets.  At a
minimut the 'ACCEPT all' lines should not be there.

What does your /etc/resolv.conf look like?
Comment 2 John Keener 2001-03-24 17:45:20 EST
-----end resolv.conf
Comment 3 John Keener 2001-03-24 18:10:07 EST
ipchains -L -n          hides one important piece of information -- the
interface.  The ACCEPT lines are actually limited to the lo and eth1 interfaces:

   6   420 ACCEPT     all  ------ 0xFF 0x00  lo               n/a
16554 2483K ACCEPT     all  ------ 0xFF 0x00  eth1               n/a
