Description Ali-Reza Anghaie 2003-06-16 16:27:53 UTC
Description of problem:   
Currently the NTP startup script checks for iptables and adds rules to the chains itself. This   
seems like a bad idea to me. If there is a central place for FW managment it should remain as   
such as not to cause confusion.   
I think it's be preferable if Lokkit could check against chkconfig or what-not and determine FW   
requirements for your enabled services. Flag them somehow so the user can make a decision.   
I would hope that the ~default~ init scripts wouldn't be allowed to overrule lokkit.   
Just a thought. Cheers, -Ali   
{ There is no lokkit component listed above for me to choose. And it failed when I used 
'component text'.. Sorry. }

Comment 1 Ali-Reza Anghaie 2005-05-31 21:48:44 UTC
Same basic problem exists in RHEL 4, nice RFE for some future release IMO.
Changing to proper package now and it's not just for lokkit anymore (new nicer
tools and GUIs). Also choosing reassign option to get to the right person now.
