Description Petr Sklenar 2013-06-04 04:12:51 EDT
Description of problem:
man says:
firewall-cmd --direct --get-chains { ipv4 | ipv6 | eb } <table>

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. look at man and list some chain
2. <table> is not described what's that

Actual results:
firewall-cmd  --get-chains ipv4 raw
# no output
firewall-cmd  --get-chains ipv4 filter
# no output, is that wrong table or zero chain?

Expected results:
there is mentioned what is <table>
if there is no output, it should indicate that list is empty

Additional info:
are tables in list of `cat /proc/net/ip_tables_names` ? 
why there is no output?

> Expected results:

yes, we should improve the man page to say that for
<table>, <chain> and <args> one should consult iptables(8) first.

> if there is no output, it should indicate that list is empty

I think the typical use case is to forward the output to variable and then check whether it's (non)empty.

> Additional info:

yes (but see below)

> why there is no output?

because --query-[chain/rule] and --get-[chains/rules] take into consideration only chains/rules previously added with 'firewall-cmd --direct'.
I'm not sure whether that's by design or bug but I guess the former one. Thomas ???
It should be definitely noted in man page too.

I've improved the firewall-cmd man page, let me know what do you think
