Re: [suse-security] SuSEfirewall2



Is there any better documentation about it then you can find in /usr/share/doc/packages/SuSEfirewall2

Here[1] you'll find a Susefirewall2 documentation. Document is rather old, as Susefirewall2 itself is too.

I found these two scripts e.g.:

SuSEfirewall2_init
SuSEfirewall2_setup

Why does SuSE needs two scripts?


There is are 3rd Script "SuSEfirewall2_final"

The firewall starts in 3 stages

1]init

Description: SuSEfirewall2_init does some basic setup and is the phase 1 of 3 of the SuSEfirewall initialization

2]setup

Description: SuSEfirewall2_setup does some basic setup and is the phase 2 of 3 of the SuSEfirewall initialization.

3]up and running

Description: SuSEfirewall2_final does finally set all the firewalling
rules. Phase 3 of 3 of SuSEfirewall setup.

All 3 scripts call /sbin/SuSEfirewall2 with different parameters.
