Description of problem:
In the default fedora installation all the
UDP traffic is blocked by the iptables.
This prevents the netbios name resolution.
The generated iptables rules must contain
at least the following:
-A INPUT -m udp -p udp --sport 137 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -m udp -p udp --dport 137 -j ACCEPT
or the user can't resolve the names of the
windows machines, neither the windows machines
can resolve his name.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is essentially the same problem as bug 444427, so I'm going to dup it to that. The quick summary is that we need a smarter system-wide way to open and close ports, and that this is not anaconda's business.
