To the Masters of Elastix' Forum (Dicko & Raphel)

When setting up a new machine I see that under "setup", "firewall Configuration" that "Security Level" is disabled by default and "SELinux" disabled by default.

Question is (prob a dumb one, but none the less thought I would ask)

Is Security Level intended to be set this way to allow the router to be firewall or can it be used in addition to router firewall?

and

Should one use the SELinux "Enforcing", "Permissive or leave it disabled? Also, if enforcing, under Customize, I would not expect that Telnet, Samba, or NSF4 should be active since I don't see need for samba access and telnet is not a required function (I may be wrong there). Any recommended "Other ports" ?

I had not done a manual setup before and had not seen reference to setup in EWT except for manual setting DHCP/Static IP address.

I inclination says to set both to enable and enforcing....

Thanks

Hey Thanks Dicko,

Not sure I understand the "TFM", still trying to figure that one out. It's prob one of those that will lay me out on the floor when I realize what it stands for.


Have a great day Sir.

Like I said, I had to pick myself up off the floor, I can really be a dumb A sometimes.

Do you have an "IM" you use or monitor?????

Fine.

:)

Also, consider binding some services to just one IP, perhaps 127.0.0.1 in some cases.
