Description macias - 2011-03-29 17:08:32 UTC
I guess this report is a duplicate of my own report, but since for an hour I am not able to list my own reports, I am filling this just in case.

Yast/Qt -> Security -> Firewall -> Interfaces.

Only ethernet (eth0) is listed, wifi is missing. Please note, in general wifi is recognized, for example in Network devices -> Network settings.

So this is not a problem of the system or Yast, but Firewall in particular.
Comment 1 Lukas Ocilka 2011-03-31 07:09:30 UTC
Firewall uses `NetworkInterfaces::List(...)` to get all the known
network interfaces. Firewall itself doesn't do any probing, searching
or anything else, just uses network functionality.
Comment 2 Lukas Ocilka 2011-03-31 07:10:27 UTC
Maciej, attach YaST logs, please.
Comment 3 macias - 2011-03-31 15:40:11 UTC
Here we go:
Comment 4 Lukas Ocilka 2012-01-04 10:15:24 UTC
Firewall could theoretically use this command to list all configured interfaces:

/sbin/ifconfig | grep "^[[:alnum:]]" | \
  sed 's/^\([[:alnum:]]\+\)[[:space:]].*$/\1/' | grep -v "^lo$"
Comment 5 Ludwig Nussel 2012-01-09 08:35:02 UTC
please don't. I'm sure there are sane ways.
Comment 6 Lukas Ocilka 2012-01-09 14:13:40 UTC
Yes, definitely. To get the list from YaST Network.
But right now it doesn't return wifi.
Comment 8 Michal Filka 2013-09-13 06:20:45 UTC

is wifi managed by NetworkManager or netconfig (ifcfg)?
Comment 9 macias - 2013-09-13 09:30:16 UTC
@Michal, _currently_ by NM. How it was in 2011 -- I don't remember, but you can check in uploaded logs.
Comment 10 Josef Reidinger 2016-10-20 12:14:36 UTC
in fact it is dup of similar bug reported by macias that firewall should allow all network interfaces
