Description Jay Turner 2002-08-05 17:20:08 UTC
Description of Problem:
When running redhat-config-securitylevel-0.9.6-3, I can set the firewall to
'high' or 'medium', but if I attempt to set the firewall to 'no firewall' I get 
"iptables: No chain/target/match by that name" when I click 'Yes' to accept the

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

The behavior for lokkit has changed.  Calling "lokkit -q --disabled" returns:
iptables: No chain/target/match by that name

Please make lokkit behave like it used to.  Running "lokkit --help" still shows
--disabled as a valid option.

Comment 10 Tim Waugh 2002-08-27 09:30:42 UTC
Hmm, 'lokkit -q --disabled' works now, but gnome-lokkit is running: 
iptables -F RH-Lokkit-0-50-INPUT 
When there is already no firewall, this just gives an error message.  But it 
seems to be functioning correctly---or are you seeing something different? 
This ought to have stderr redirected to /dev/null I suppose.

Comment 11 Tim Waugh 2002-08-27 10:30:39 UTC
Come to think of it, should 'lokkit -q --disabled' be running:  
iptables -F input 
iptables -F RH-Lokkit-0-50-INPUT 
(Currently it does the former, since I changed it from 'iptables -F INPUT')

Comment 12 Tim Waugh 2002-08-27 16:34:08 UTC
Changed it to use: 
iptables -D INPUT -j RH-Lokkit-0-50-INPUT 2>/dev/null 
iptables -F RH-Lokkit-0-50-INPUT 2>/dev/null 
iptables -X RH-Lokkit-0-50-INPUT 2>/dev/null 
in gnome-lokkit-0.50-18.

Looks good to me.
