Could you provide your personal reasons why you do not want
to have YaST on your servers.

It takes "ages" to start (yast2 firewall => 4 to 5 seconds), and I am just
quicker (and have the necessary experience) to just edit the appropriate
configuration files directly to, say, add a port to the don't-filter list.

I only resort(ed) to yast when the configuration of a component is
overly clumsy -- pppd is one of those cases. But by now, the days of
ISDN and PPPoE are gone. (It's all DHCP and and/or NAT by now.)
