Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 337861
system-config-firewall changes not commited immediately
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
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 immediately.
Seems to apply to fc6 too.

su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update system-config-securitylevel'
