On my research list: migrate from OpenSuSE SuSEfirewall2 to firewalld

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/02/11

The [WayBack] is on my research list as right before going on holiday, upgrading broke my firewall configuration (:

Tumbleweed sometimes means living on the bleeding edge (which forces you to learn new things faster), so I knew things like this could be coming.


From the IRC chat at #opensuse-factory:
[5:25pm] <wiert> Something odd happened today: on an x64 system, I did zypper dist-upgrade, and now apache2 ports 80 and 443 are not reachable from the outside any more (only on localhost)
[5:25pm] <wiert> sysconf_addword /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 FW_CONFIGURATIONS_EXT apache2
[5:25pm] <wiert> "apache2" already present
[5:26pm] <wiert> same fore apache2-ssl
[5:27pm] <wiert> sshd on the same line works fine. Apache runs.
[5:30pm] <wiert> What could I have broken? I went from 20180129 to 20180209
[5:30pm] Son_Goku joined the chat room.
[5:31pm] <wiert> Ah, I see that /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2.d/services/apache2 and /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2.d/services/apache2-ssl got deleted. Why?
[5:32pm] <simonizor> AFAIK, it was replaced by firewalld
[5:33pm] <simonizor> Both use iptables as a backend, so functionality should be relatively the same
[5:34pm] <wiert> Any URLs for migration tips?
[5:35pm] <wiert> For now I’ve done sysconf_addword /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 FW_SERVICES_EXT_TCP 80
[5:35pm] <wiert> and sysconf_addword /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 FW_SERVICES_EXT_TCP 443
[5:35pm] <wiert> now it “works” but I need to migrate one day.
