Description Bas Mevissen 2007-10-18 08:25:30 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

How reproducible:

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
Actual results:
New setting is stored, but first becomes in effect when service iptables is

Expected results:
New setting in effect immidiately.

Additional info:
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.
