Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 337831
system-config-firewall does not commit changes immediately
Last modified: 2008-04-04 08:40:02 EDT
Description of problem:
When you change a firewall setting, it is not applied before service iptables is
restarted. This is not what I expect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fc6 system up to date; system-config-securitylevel-1.6.27-2
Steps to Reproduce:
In Gnome session:
1. Select Top menu System -> Administration -> Security level and Firewall
2. Enter root password (when requested)
3. Change some setting
4. Press OK
5. Press Yes
New setting is stored, but first becomes in effect when service iptables is
New setting in effect immidiately.
Seems to apply to fc7 too.

Is OK in Fedora 8 (where the package is called system-config-firewall). As
Fedora 9 is almost there, it is a waste of time to look back to anything before
Fedora 8. So no need to fix it anymore.
