Description of problem:
My security setting is set to high, with ppp0 as a trusted device.
I have "customize" selected. I do not allow *any* incoming services, but still
have entries from outside in my apache log file.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Security level: high
2. Select "customize"
3. Select "ppp0" as a trusted device.
4. Ensure nothing under "allow incoming" is selected.
Rebooting doesn't change anything.
I thought that a "trusted device" meant that you trusted (ie. allowed) all
traffic from that device, and the firewall setting only applied to non-trusted
This is expected behaviour, trusted devices are exempt from the firewall rules. See
I think the manual could be clearer:
"..Selecting any of the Trusted Devices allows access *to* your system for
all traffic *from* that device.."
and the gui should give a warning.
This is a dupe of 88136
