Summary: Lookup doesn't work if firewall is enabled
Product: SUSE Linux 10.1
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: YaST2
AssignedTo: mzugec@xxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: mzugec@xxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: jsrain@xxxxxxxxxx


Lookup doesn't work if firewall is enabled. YaST still tries to look it up
but it obviously fails. No message is reported that it is because of running
firewall.

Never change a firewall configuration on your own. You can:

a.) Try to lookup and if it returns nothing and there is some firewall running,
report error, that it might be bacause of running error.
b.) When user selects to lookup, open-up a pop-up and ask them whether they
want to lookup the server despite the fact that a firewall is running and might
block the broadcast traffic.
c.) Disable the lookup button in case of running firewall and then write this
eventuality to help.
