I fire up
the Security Level Configuration tool to open up these two ports, but
there is not an "other ports" box (as apparently there was in RH9) to
open up ports other than http, ssh, ftp, etc...
My questions are as follows:
1) Any reason in particular that this feature would be removed? There
are about a million reasons why ports other than the standard 5 would
need to be opened, and a simple interface (integrated into the current
Security Level Configuration app) for customizing the (nonstandard) open
ports would be nice.
Oddly enough, it is still there in redhat-config-securitylevel-tui
2) Am I going to have to play around with iptables at the command
to open up these two ports (if yes, just let me know, and I'll man/info
Any serious firewall work will most likely require iptables knowledge, or
a more advanced frontend (shorewall, firestarter, etc.)
