Description John Horne 2003-07-16 04:43:58 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
Installed RHL9 with 'high' firewall setting. Then ran Ximian's evolution and
tried to get email using imap from local server. It failed. Ran
redhat-config-securitylevel but there is no option add (customize) to allow
additional ports -I would like to add the IMAP port. Same will probably occur
for POP email.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHL9. Specify a 'high' or 'medium' firewall setting.
2. Startup evolution and try to receive email using IMAP (or POP). 

Actual Results:  The firewall (iptables) prevents receiving imap/POP mail.

Expected Results:  Okay, so the firewall prevents it, but I should be able to
reconfigure it using redhat-config-securitylevel to allow additional ports -
just as occurs during the installation process.
Not tested yet but I assume if I specify the IMAP port during installation, it
will work. I'll test today.

Additional info:
PS -  http://bugzilla.redhat.com defaults to redhat linux version 8 - surely it
should default to '9' by now?

I see this has been fixed in the 'Severn' beta version. Thanks.

Ok then.  Closing.
