Firewall in upgrade fro RH 7.0 to RH 7.1

Firewall in upgrade fro RH 7.0 to RH 7.1

Post by Richard A. Bilonic » Wed, 04 Jul 2001 13:04:47



Hi,

I'm running RH 7.0 with a firewall using ipchains. I understand that
firewalls are handled differently in RH 7.1. What will happen to the
firewall when I upgrade from 7.0 to 7.1?

Firewall in upgrade fro RH 7.0 to RH 7.1

Hi..

  IPCHAINS is the same by default..    If you want..   You can use IPTABLES..  That's where is gets
different..    When you install RH7.1, it will give you a GUI prompt for a firewall configuration,
choose no firewall..    It's easier to control the IPCHAIN's rules on your own.  I'm upgrading my
RH6.2 machine to RH7.1 and I'm not having any problems...

During the install of RH7.1 it inserts the ipchains package and the ipchains
module.  As a result, the default firewall script that you have in RH7.0
should work in RH7.1 without any problems.  It only becomes a problem if you
want to use "iptables" where you have to remove the ipchains module first.

See ya

1. RH 7.1 over RH 7.0

I currently have RH7.0 installed on a computer in my closet which is
hooked to my cable modem. I use Windows2K and Exceed to log on to my
Linux box to do X stuff. And I SSH into it from work to check my
email. I'm currently using ipchains for a firewall.

I just downloaded the 7.1 ISO and burned it to CD. To install it I'll
have to hook up a monitor to the linux box in the closet.

Was wondering do I first remove 7.0? Should I reparition the HD? Or is
it easiest to simply install 7.1 on top of 7.0? And if I do it that
way, are there pitfalls with other apps that I'll need to upgrade or
recompile?

In my experience this is usually an all day, if not all weekend
process. I know I have to convert my ipchains scripts to iptables. So
that'll take some time figuring out how to do.

Thanks for any advice you may have.
