[opensuse-packaging] Re: How to convert these iptables rules to SuSEfirewall2?

I packaged ocserv in network:vpn and I wanted to submit it to Factory.

Dominique suggests me to raise this topic.

I wrote the instruction in README.SUSE before:

#### Shutdown SUSEFirewall2 through YaST

Because I don't know how to convert iptables rules to SUSEFirewall2 ones.
If you can help me, please fork this package and submit back.

#### Set iptables rules

sudo /sbin/iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 9000 -j ACCEPT
sudo /sbin/iptables -A INPUT -p udp --dport 9001 -j ACCEPT
sudo /sbin/iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s -o eth0 -j
sudo /sbin/iptables -A FORWARD -s -j ACCEPT

The 9000/9001 ports, IP range are default ones,
you can change them in /etc/ocserv/ocserv.conf

Warning: Your eth0 may not exist, you can ifconfig -a to find yours.

#### Enable IP forward

sudo echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

It doesn't live after reboot.


How can I achieve the same result without shutting SuSEFirewall2 down?

Any documentation I can learn from?


First: you can add iptables rules without shutting down SuSEFirewall2.
( for the ports drop a file into
/etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2.d/services/ )

Second: enabling ip forwarding, use sysctl for that.
( drop a file into /etc/sysctl.d/ )

Third: other vpn software has to do something similar. Have you
taken a look there?

Build a script to run in the ExecPre= section of the systemd
ocserv.service file.

That's IMHO, not a final word of the security review team,
which ocserv will have to pass to be accepted into factory.

Have a nice weekend.
