I have a bizarre problem that I'm hoping someone here may have answer to.
I am running SuSE 9.1 Pro as a sole file/print server, with DNS, DHCP,
Samba, postfix etc. Everything works great, I turn on the firewall through
Yast, setup the basic config (the GUI is extremely limited BTW), allowing
the apps & ports where applicable. Everything works EXCEPT for DHCP, and I
have been unable to determine what I'm doing wrong.
I added TCP ports 67 & 68 in the GUI (Yast), and verified they were there in
the SuSEfirewall2 config file.
FW_SERVICES_EXT_TCP="67 68 ..."
I added UDP ports 67 & 68 in the SuSEfirewall config file (as the GUI fails
to offer UDP "option")
FW_SERVICES_EXT_UDP="67 68 ..."
For grins.., I even added the ports to the internal config
(FW_SERVICES_INT_UDP="67 68"), even though the server connects to the LAN
via an external card only. I also changed the DHCP daemon to yes
(FW_SERVICE_DHCPD="yes"), all to no avail.
All other services, apps and ports work as they should, but DHCP just will
not talk to any client requesting an address, until I disable the firewall.
I ran Ethereal on the client, and sure enough, the client requests for DHCP
are using ports 67 & 68 like they should.
Thanks in advance!
