Hi all! I’m new to OpenSUSE, and kind of new to Linux in general. (about a month of regular desktop usage at this point)
I just jumped from Fedora to OpenSUSE, and am enjoying many of the differences! But the firewall setting are leaving me very confused, and searching the forum hasn’t brought up quite what I’m looking for. So some questions:
Why are the settings for a connection listed as “block”, “home”, and “trusted” the same by default? Am I missing something about how these work? I’d think home and trusted would be less restricted.
What are of the services listed? Is there a list somewhere? I don’t see it in the firewalld documentation.
How should I configure things to fit my use case with a home network? I’ll need the following to work:
samba and nfs shared folders (and discovery)
gaming (both lan and online)
I’m pretty sure I can accomplish most of this by opening up 192.168.100.0/24 right?
If there are tutorials for this, I’ll gladly take them as well.
Yes, exactly. Sorry for any confusion.
Internet is already fine, but I know I can’t access my network shares yet (not sure how to fix that), and I’m unsure if I’ll need to open up anything for the printer and gaming.
I only used Fedora for about a month, and never needed to alter the firewall. This seems to be because Fedora opens up every port above 1025 by default.
Ok, so following the links from that thread showed me that the firewall rules are actually implementing correctly, but YaST/firewall-cmd is only reading the Public zone for everything. So I just swapped my zone back from Home to Public (it’s a desktop, so it doesn’t actually matter) and I can do it now.
Seems like a recent issue, so hopefully it gets fixed quickly. Thanks.
