I have 2 computers Leap 15.0, one is a desktop upgraded from 42.3, the second a laptop new install on blank HDD
My questions are in 2 parts about firewall manager:
- What has been done in Leap 15.0 compared to Leap 42.3
- How to upgrade to the new firewall manager
I understand that but
[Upgraded from 42.3] Why I have an error message “These packages need to be installed: firewall-config” when I click Firewall in the GUI Yast Control Center? Should not be yet installed ?
[New install 15.0] Same issue: Why I have an error message “These packages need to be installed: firewall-config” when I click Firewall in the GUI Yast Control Center? Should not be yet installed in the new install?
[Upgraded from 42.3] I can see that I have 2 iptables manager installed: SuSEfirewall2 with enabled-active service and firewalld with disable-inactive service. Why I can’t directly use SuSEfirewall2 as previously?
[New install 15.0] I can see that I have only firewalld installed with enabled-active service. Why I can’t directly use firewalld, there is an error message?
[New install 15.0] Should I install firewall-config to get the new iptable manager firewalld working?
[Upgraded from 42.3] What will happen if I install firewall-config, I’ll use SuSEfirewall2 or firewalld?
How to upgrade to the new firewalld from SuSEfirewall2?
This page explains about Firewalld and migration
But why we need a migration tool? I was thinking the iptables was not changed, moreover they say to backup iptables. They say not all rules may be upgraded. Is there different iptables for Firewalld and SuSEfirewall2?
Thank you for your help
