[Gluster-devel] GlusterFS firewalld control

Hey Gluster Developers,

I'm fairly new to GlusterFS, but noticed, that it is missing the
possibility to control firewalld, which is also addressed in [1]
Since I wanted to propose a solution for this problem, I briefly talked to
Niels de Vos and we identified 2 possible ways to fix this:

1) Use the dbus connection to control firewalld when we do bind() as a
server - it looks like there is only one place where we do that [2]
     --> Pretty much a catch all solution, but will require to link against
dbus and a precompiler check for OSs with firewalld

2) Use the glusterfs hooks to call a script, when we create volumes to open
up the (dynamic) ports of the involved bricks
     --> Easier to implement, but where do we get the port information
from? Additionally involves the creation of a static config for the
glusterd process.

Looking at [3], we need to open up additional (dynamic) ports for NFS? Is
that info correct?

Since I'm fairly new, I would welcome a discussion, which approach is best
in your opinion. Please also tell me if any assumptions from above are

Best Regards,
