Description of problem:
After setting the security level to HIGH during installation, I wanted to change to another level (MEDIUM or No firewall), Iogged in as root and used
Gnome menu's System settings->Security Level option. At the Security Level Configuration window, I selected Medium. When I restarted the
configuration again, the initial security level of High was not changed. I have also tried to use the Customize option from the Configuration window,
and the settings were not changed. It seems that security level cannot be changed after installation.
Your help on how to change security level would be appreciated.
I want to change the security level to diagnose a problem that I am experiencing with access to network resources.
I am unable to print to a printer attached to another Linux system, with RH8.0. I can successfully ping the two computers, from each other's
terminals using their IP addresses, but I cannot do so using their respective hostnames.
Regarding the printing problem, I recieve an error "cannot open connection to <hostname_with_attached_printer> -bad or missing hostname"
when I issue the command "lpr -V -P <Network_printer> <file_to_print>" from the other computer in the network. This computer, a labtop, has an
LPD printer installed to use share the printer that is locally installed on the other computer, a desktop.
I am able to share internet connection from both computers though, so I know that the router is working fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.System settings->Security Settings
3.Change from default (initial setting) High to Medium
Actual Results: No change from initial security level setting
Expected Results: Medium level
No error message
assigning to correct component
assigning to correct owner
I have resolved the problem with access to network resources by adding IP
addresses/hostnames to /etc/hosts file.
Still not able to change security level
