Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 624060
Mistakes in Security Guide - Section 2.5. Firewalls
Last modified: 2015-04-06 23:19:56 EDT
1, in section 184.108.40.206. Saving the Settings
The selected options are also written to the /etc/sysconfig/system-config-securitylevel file so that the settings can be restored the next time the application is started. Do not edit this file by hand.
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **
The text shows '/etc/sysconfig/system-config-firewall' as the file that the config is written to. There is no system-config-securitylevel tool in this release, or a file that I can see.
Can you please elaborate on what the problem is here?
Yes, the /etc/sysconfig/system-config-firewall is correct.
The file i mentioned ( /etc/sysconfig/system-config-securitylevel ) exists and is used in RHEL5 for same purpose but not in RHEL6.
If the correct file was there also before I'm not sure where I was looking :-/ So this can be closed.
