rhevm-websocket-proxy - open firewall port?
Last modified: 2013-07-18 11:26:43 EDT
Description of problem:
After installing rhevm-websocket-proxy and starting it, I cannot access it as iptables is not updated.
It would be nice to make some kung-fu to allow rhevm-websocket-proxy work out of the box without manual intervention (minimum for default 6100 port).
# rpm --scripts -q rhevm-websocket-proxy
postinstall program: /bin/sh
preuninstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
if [ $1 -eq 0 ] ; then
service ovirt-websocket-proxy stop > /dev/null 2>&1 || true
postuninstall program: /bin/sh
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install clean rhevm
2. install rhevm-websocket-proxy
3. start ovirt-websocket-proxy and try to connect from client to hosts' 6100 port
blocked by FW
working without manual intervention (we are enterprise) :-)
maybe whole FW should be changed, what about this?
* rhevm-setup would create new chain for each its apps (engine, websocket-proxy)
* as engine is what is installed by default, populate with rules
* when starting websocket-proxy get port and put into rules into its own chain
just thinking loudly...
