    Fedora Firewall issue


    Whenever I reboot my Fedora Core 1 box, LAN connectivty is lost. If I got into the Security app and click "OK" to enable "Security" (aka the firewall) suddenly connectivity is restored until I reboot again. What's confusing to me is when I first open this app it says that security is already enabled, I just click the OK button to enable it again despite the fact it's allegedly already enabled. See what I mean?? Kind of nutty...

    Any idea where I should start hunting to troubleshoot this?

    I don't use FDC, but I think you need the firewall added to your startup scripts.
    Me & Myself just ganged up on I....... Now We all have problems..and none of Us are speaking!

    I don't use FDC, but I think you need the firewall added to your startup scripts.
    To turn on security with FDC (iptables) do..

    [root]$ chkconfig iptables --list

    you should get
    iptables 0-off 1-off 2-on 3-on 4-on 5-on 6-off

    is this so?

    if all are off they can be switched on using
    [root]$ chkconfig iptables on

    that should do it- reboot.
