This test case tests whether disabling the firewall works correctly in a kickstart-driven installation.
- Prepare a test system (virtual or real) with sufficient memory to install Fedora, an empty hard disk (or such that you do not mind losing the contents of all connected hard disks: this test WILL wipe all hard disks connected to the test system), and (ideally) a network connection and another system from which you can connect to the test system
How to test
- Boot using a dedicated installer image for the Fedora release you wish to test
- At the boot menu, edit the options for one of the "Install Fedora" options to include the parameter inst.ks=http://fedorapeople.org/groups/qa/kickstarts/firewall-disabled-net.ks
- The installation should run unattended: allow it to complete
- Boot the installed system and log in as 'root' with password 'anaconda'
iptables -L -v
- If possible, try to connect to a port or running service from another system on the local network
firewall-cmd --stateshould report
iptables -L -voutput
rules should be present in the
- Connecting to any running service from other systems should work (so long as no other firewalls or similar are in the way)
