#5 Firewall/firewalld integration
Closed: Fixed None Opened 8 years ago by jwboyer.

We need to figure out what to do about the Firewall and sharing via apps. I believe Matthias is working on this one already, so I'll assign it to him.


We are working on improving the sharing configuration make it aware of the current network situation in this upstream bug:

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=727580

The WG decided this recently. Upstream GNOME changed how sharing works, and the default firewall settings have been changed in Workstation to allow high ports to be open. The WG also decided to no longer include firewall-config in the default install, though it is certainly accessible via the software installer.

Replying to [comment:2 jwboyer]:

The WG also decided to no longer include firewall-config in the default install, though it is certainly accessible via the software installer.

I think we should document all decisions we make. In this case, the decision was made on the mailing list and is summarized at https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/desktop/2014-August/010427.html

Please note that we did not follow the Workstation's WG statutes as we did not have an official "Proposal for Vote" on the list.
