Thank you for catching that. Once 7.2 is released, there will be an errata on
the Web site.

The documentation for the next release will fix the issue in the printed manuals.

Unfortunately, the printed manuals are already done, so I can only issue an errata.

I am leaving this bug open until the errata is published on the Web site.

Just checked at http://www.redhat.com/docs/errata/RHL-7.2-Manual/ and

Guide does not this information. It only

for configuring a basic firewall solution. If you
need further information on iptables, refer to
the Red Hat Support page on Creating a

Comment 3 Tammy Fox 2001-10-23 13:53:44 UTC
Sorry about that. I fixed the docs errata page.

Comment 4 Jim Wright 2002-01-30 08:31:13 UTC
the errata is up, so if this is fixed in the documentation source for the next
release this bug can be closed.

Comment 5 Johnray Fuller 2002-01-30 18:23:16 UTC
I have not added the fix to the source so I will leave this bug open until then.

Thank you for your help in this matter.


Comment 6 Johnray Fuller 2002-04-05 18:48:16 UTC
Okay, it is in the source now and will be updated in the next release.

Thanks for the catch!
