Thread: yast problems.

  1. #1

    Default yast problems.

    So as I have to use network connections from stations to stations, I have to enable sshd deamon and disable firewall. But there is a problem. After enabling sshd in system runlevels and disable firewall, changes won't save, but they still work. After computer reboot all changes are back to basic settings and sshd deamon will be disabled and firewall will be enabled. Was checking logs, but there is no erros or any massages why it won't work.


    Does anybody have some tips and tricks how to solve it?

    Thenks.

    Use yast --> System --> Runlevels to enable sshd permanently. And there is no need to disable the firewall completely to use ssh. Open port 22 with yast firewall settings module on the server side and it should work.

    The issue is:

    I go to yast --> System --> Runlevels to enable sshd. Service is enabled.. Save changes. But the changes are saved only for this session not permanently. After reboot its back to basics. Even with out reboot when i open system runlevels once again it shows "sshd enabled ( No* ).

    what operating system and version are you using?

    when you launch YaST does it ask for the root password?

    is there a desktop environment involved? which?

    are you logged into the desktop environment as root, or as yourself,
    a basic user?

    is there a VM involved?

    are you using "ifup" or Network Manager?

    when you wrote "I have to use network connections from stations to
    stations" are you saying that you are having this problem on a
    distant system or is it in the machine you are directly connected to
    via the keyboard?

    1)OS - opensuse 12.3
    2) yes, its asking root password before letting to use yast
    3) 2 computers. My pc is using xfce, 2nd computer is using kde.
    4) tried both. as a basic user and as a root. same problem for both sessions.
    5) no VM.
    6) didn't use any app other then yast.
    7) I'm trying to install new opensuse 12.3 because 12.2 and intel MB graphics drivers won't work(laggy) As I work in a hospital where is a lot of computers ssh are used to connect to computers remotly. But not this time.

    well...i thought i had an idea what might be the problem, but your
    answers removed that idea..

    i have NO idea how you can set the firewall and sshd in YaST and have
    it magically revert to not set during a boot.

    it is beyond my experience level..

    we can hope a real guru stops in and we can both learn something..
    so, i'll watch this thread and hope to learn.....

    I do: Yast is broken, or rather, it has not been upgraded to cope with
    systemd services properly. :-/

    You have to use instead "systemadm" instead.

    As to firewall changes, they should work in yast.

    Nono, I know very little of systemd. It was jdmcdaniel3 who posted that
    method in the link I gave. I simply had made a note of it for later use.

    YaST-->Security and Users-->Firewall

    Is where you turn the firewall on or off.
