Subject: [Bug 286643] [NEW] bacula client configuration is broken out of
the box

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: bacula-client


I am a member of the bacula dev team, my role is rpm packaging. I
recently installed Kubuntu-8.04 on my daughter's machine (I have bacula
running on my local Kubuntu-8.04 server). When installing the bacula
client package I spent some minimal time this past weekend figuring out
why your package does not work "out of the box" as it were. The client
was available on the localhost but not available on the network. To put
it simply, someone has apparently decided that packaging should address
security concerns, and thus your package configures the client to listen
only on localhost. While this might be apparent to me or other
developers on the bacula project, it is not, most likely, apparent to
the majority of users and we do not want this to reflect on the bacula
project as a whole. We, as an upstream dev team feel that these concerns
should be relegated to firewalls, etc. and not to individual
applications. Thus we consider your packages broken. Please include
bacula-devel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx in any replies. Thanks in advance for your
