Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-02-04 19:05:04 UTC
Description of problem:
system-config-securitylevel would silently fail to apply configuration changes.
I added ports 5100/tcp and 5100/udp to the list of opened port, and they are not
actually being opened. The next time I ran s-c-sl, the ports are no longer listed.

Worse, I disabled the firewall from s-c-sl, and it is indeed stopped, but the
next time I ran s-c-sl it claimed that the firewall is still up

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try adding a port to be opened
2. Try disabling firewall
3. Try reenabling firewall
Actual results:
1) fails silently. 2) works, but is not reflected in the interface. 3) fails --
/sbin/service iptables show firewall still down

Expected results:
As in FC6, everything should work

Additional info:
System cleanly installed from FC7t1 desktop spin, updated to latest Rawhide

Comment 1 Luke Macken 2007-02-08 04:05:56 UTC
I'm experiencing the same issue; manually added ports are disappearing after
applying the settings.

Comment 2 Peter Sabiniewicz 2007-02-26 21:28:52 UTC
I'm experiencing  the same issue in my FC6
Custom add port are disappearing after and apply settings.

Comment 3 Josep 2007-03-14 21:41:19 UTC
Just to add that, if enabled, the firewall can not be disabled either. (rawhide

Comment 13 Scott Berry 2007-06-10 02:46:48 UTC
I have found this to be true when hitting the apply button on a Dell Dimension 
4600.  I tried opening port 10000, and 20000.

Comment 14 Jason Farrell 2007-06-10 02:53:58 UTC
appears to be fixed in system-config-securitylevel-1.7.0-3.fc7

Comment 15 vfiend 2007-06-10 03:01:47 UTC
Yup, thanks a lot, whoever fixed it!

Comment 16 Stefan Becker 2007-06-16 10:14:37 UTC
Confirmed. system-config-securitylevel-1.7.0-3.fc7 from updates-testing fixes
the problem.

Comment 17 Tim Hartley 2007-06-27 15:46:20 UTC
Thanks a lot for fixing this!  Is there anything regular users can do to get
this pushed into updates?  It seems like if the standard tool to change firewall
settings doesn't work, then even a not-completely-tested fix is better.

Comment 19 Jay Jaeger 2007-07-15 17:19:54 UTC
I had the same issue.  I also found a workaround:  click on any of the services
in the Trusted Services list pane -- it even works to click it twice to leave it
in the same state it had been in originally.

Comment 20 Thomas Woerner 2007-07-31 10:11:52 UTC
Fixed in rawhide in package system-config-securitylevel-1.7.0-4.fc8.

Comment 21 Granville Xiong 2007-08-02 05:09:43 UTC
Will this update be reflected in FC7 soon???
