RFE: Handle firewall settings and selected services so they don't conflict on ports
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:09 EDT
Description of Problem:
Anaconda happily let me choose both NIS for passwords and a medium firewall
without any warning that this combination won't let me login.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): skipjack's anaconda
How Reproducible: will try on another box and find out. So far, one out of one.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install skipjack
2. Select NIS in passwords
3. Create root account: leave rest for NIS to find.
3. Select medium firewall
Can login as root but not as users.
Can login as all users.
This is the first time I have touched NIS. This may be pilot error :)
lokkit doesn't really do anything that sophicated (all anaconda does is call the
lokkit program with command line args based on the 'level of security' you selected.
The documentation for that screen tries to explain the possible interactions
between the firewall setting and services, but it is not intended to be a
substitute for a true services/firewall config tool (which doesn't exist).
Something we can revisit in the future once the OS has a tool to do this better
This is not a feature we are going to add to the installer.
