Description Brent Nordquist 2001-06-30 01:12:49 UTC
Description of Problem:
When customizing the firewall configuration during a TUI install,
the text description doesn't tell the user what delimiter is used to
separate multiple "Other ports" entries; hence you must guess.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose "Medium" and then "Customize" from the Firewall TUI screen.
2. Note that the separator isn't specified.
3. Make some checkbox choices, then enter an invalid "Other ports"
value (I guessed "finger:tcp;auth:tcp" and "finger:tcp auth:tcp").
4. See warning that "Other ports" isn't valid.

Expected Results:
It would be nice to add a few words that tell what the separator
should be.

Ok, I added a little blurb about using commas to separate the list.  Although,
this is documented in the help if you press <F1> in text mode.  Unfortunately,
due to limited screen space in the text installer, we can't quite give a full
explaination.  Thanks for your report.
