Projects building on Fedora should not be forced to learn a special new language; need to make it easy for these projects to directly use their existing rules.
From bug #981583:
Description of problem:
Firewall rules are applied by packstack via iptables, but in f19 the default firewall management tool is firewalld, this means that the rules are not persistent across reboot if firewalld is enabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always if firewalld is enabled and iptables is not.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run packstack
After the reboot "iptables -L" shows no packstack specific rules.
There should be firewall rules for openstack present after reboot.
This can be fixed by disabling/stopping the firewalld service and enabling/starting the iptables service.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
The basic premise of this bug is wrong: IP tables should not be blindly carried over to FirewallD.
What needs to happen is the OpenStack services need firewallD rules, like were done in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=914859
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
