From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020809

Description of problem:
The tool does not remember any of your current settings, always defaulting to
high security with default firewall rules.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set your firewall rules. Close the application
2. Restart the application


Expected Results:  Tool should detect my previous settings and let me further
change my rules.

Comment 1 Gene Czarcinski 2002-08-27 14:24:05 EDT
This should really be changed to be a Request for Enhancement (RFE) for the
software to read the existing/current configuration and use that as a starting
point for configuration.
Comment 2 Steve Fox 2002-08-27 14:50:27 EDT
Good point. I have done this now.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-08-27 16:03:34 EDT
redhat-config-securitylevel calls lokkit to set the firewall level.  What's
needed is a way for lokkit to have a way of telling what level it setup last. 
So, if I could call something like "lokkit --level", it could return something
like "High" or "Off".  Then redhat-config-securitylevel would have a way of
knowing what the current firewall setting looks like.

I'm changing the component to lokkit, but please transfer this bug back to
redhat-config-securitylevel if/when lokkit has this ability.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-08-27 16:05:45 EDT
Hmm, lokkit isn't a component but gnome-lokkit is.
Comment 5 Muralidhar Ganga 2002-08-27 16:31:20 EDT
Same problem with setup, Firewall Configuration....

root # setup
select Firewall Configuration
change the firewall settings

Does not reflect to the actual settings.

Comment 8 Mattias Dahlberg 2002-10-04 14:27:08 EDT
Are you sure gnome-lokkit will ever get that ability? I ask because there's a 
big difference between a wizard style GUI (gnome-lokkit) and the type of GUI 
redhat-config-securitylevel has. When using a configuration wizard you don't 
expect your old settings being presented, but when using an "ordinary" GUI you 
do. When I fired up redhat-config-securirylevel for the first time it was to 
view the current firewall settings. I wouldn't even consider to use gnome-
lokkit for the same purpose, of course.
Comment 9 Brent Fox 2002-10-14 12:11:44 EDT
voz, I'm requesting that the functionality be added to lokkit, not specifically
the gnome-lokkit frontend.  However, the bug is filed against gnome-lokkit since
the lokkit backend comes from the same source RPM as gnome-lokkit.  Bugzilla's
component list comes from the source RPMs, not the binary RPM packages.

Comment 13 Tom Wood 2002-10-29 12:20:31 EST
Isn't marking this as a duplicate to 25510 risky, in that before 8.0 lokkit
deals with ipchains, not iptables?  Are you sure this will cover both?
