Description David Woodhouse 2013-07-16 15:25:58 EDT
The first thing I did after installing my system (Fedora 18 or maybe 17) was run 'lokkit --disabled' to fix the network connectivity.

On upgrading to Fedora 19, my configuration appears to have been discarded and it isn't obvious how to fix my network again.

If you upgraded from an earlier version to F-19, the old firewall solution should still be used. In a fresh installation, firewalld will be used.

If you want to disable the firewalld, please use "systemctl disable firewalld"

Please have a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FirewallD for more information on firewalld.
Comment 3 David Woodhouse 2013-08-01 09:28:12 EDT
The fact that a previously functioning setup has been broken in the upgrade *is* a bug, surely?

The document you refer me to does state that migration from previous configurations is "in a very early state", but surely the simple setup of "do no firewalling" is easy enough to migrate?

Does it not have other implications if I simply kill the service completely? Don't I need it running for libvirt to set up its guest networks with NAT? I seem to recall that was an issue in the past, requiring that the previous incarnation of Fedora firewall management *not* be completely disabled at the sysvinit/systemd level.

All I'm looking for is a single, consistent way to tell Fedora "do not break my network connectivity" which works from one release to the next without regressions. And for it to be clearly documented in a way that 'lokkit --disabled' never was. I'd actually like it to be an option in the installer too, but I suppose that's never going to come back.

"lokkit --disabled" disabled the firewall.

You can disable the firewalld service with this command:

  systemctl mask firewalld.service
