Comments on: Firewall Zone Switcher Updated Blogs and Ramblings of the openSUSE Members Fri, 06 Mar 2020 17:50:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: Ludwig Nussel Fri, 28 Aug 2009 15:45:47 +0000 The wording is still kind of experimental. I don’t know what describes the zones best. Currently the mapping is hardcoded:
int – Unprotected
dmz – Partially Protected
ext – Protected

Of course ‘Protected’ here doesn’t mean much if you open any ports in the external zone.

In the previous version I used this:
int – Trusted Network
dmz – Foreign Network
ext – Internet

By: AlbertoP Fri, 28 Aug 2009 13:41:37 +0000 Great!

One question though: what does “partially protected” and “protected” mean? Is it something “untrusted” and “trusted” zone?


By: Ludwig Nussel Fri, 28 Aug 2009 12:33:56 +0000 polkit support in Factory is currently quite incomplete. Also there are still more packages using PolicyKit than polkit so 11.2 will likely have both.
fwzs is submitted for inclusion in Factory, yes.

By: Dominique Leuenberger Fri, 28 Aug 2009 12:09:13 +0000 Ludwig,

Any plans of porting it over to PolicyKit-1.0? That’s what we’ll be having in 11.2. But other than that! Great job! Something that was missing for a long time appears.
(Already packaged and submitted to openSUSE:Factory?)
