Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 51993
firewalls block X11 but not VNC.
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:22:45 EDT
The medium security level in lokkit blocks the X11 ports on 6000:6009, but
it doesn't block VNC ports on 5800:5809 and 5900:5909. I'd hope it would,
since a.) VNC is essentially a cleartext protocol, and b.) one can do more
damage via VNC than via an unprotected X port.
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
