I want to allow e.g. SSH on to my computer, running opensuse 11.4.
When i try to open up the firewall, too allow this, the options to allow a service appear limited and impossible to add a new service. Also, the “name” field doesnt appear anywhere.
Firewall tool has these options to the left:
Here, enter additional ports or protocols to enable in the firewall zone.
TCP Ports and UDP Ports can be entered as a list of port numbers, port names, or port ranges separated by spaces, such as 22, http, or 137:139.
RPC Ports is a list of RPC services, such as nlockmgr, ypbind, or portmap, separated by spaces.
IP Protocols is a list of protocols, such as esp, smp, or chaos, separated by spaces. Find the current list of protocols at http://www.iana.org/assignments/protocol-numbers.
The Port Range consists of two colon-separated numbers that represent all numbers inside the range including the numbers themselves. The first port number must be lower than the second one, for example, 200:215.
The Port Name is a name assigned to a port number by the IANA organisation. One port number can have multiple port names assigned. Find the assignment currently in use in the /etc/services file.
And fields to the right, but on the right, there are no spaces for:
The Port Range
The Port Name
When i click next/finish, no additional services are added to the allowed services for the firewall.
It seems very difficult to use.
Appreciate any help.
