[yast-devel] [Announcement] Ports for SuSEfirewall added via packages

I'd like to announce one major change in openSUSE 11.1 / SLE 11:
In the past, YaST Firewall had a special SuSEFirewallServices library that covered the main services for YaST Firewall UI.

See a small example of Samba Server:
"samba-server" : $[
"name" : _("Samba Server"),
"tcp_ports" : [ "netbios-ssn", "microsoft-ds" ],
"udp_ports" : [ "netbios-ns", "netbios-dgm" ],
"broadcast_ports" : [ "netbios-ns", "netbios-dgm" ],

This statically-defined library has been obsoleted by feature "Service Definitions Added via Packages" since openSUSE 10.3, openSUSE 11.0 still contains these definitions but some have been already replaced with the new dynamically-defined services.

All statically-defined services were dropped in openSUSE 11.1 / SLE 11, SuSEFirewallServices will only provide conversion to the new type of services if possible.

Please, make sure your packages provide service definitions for SuSEfirewall2. See also:

There are still some bugs (enhancements) open (untouched) requesting to add these services: #251663, #247344, #247359, #247355, #251657, #247368, #247363. Feel free to add more :)

Have a nice day
