I did a clean install with beta 7 and added http and
https as trusted services during install. When I tried
to use a page needing port 2082 the page would time
out. I either had to manually add port 2082 in the
Security level and firewall application or go into
webmin and add the eth0 rule. I couldn't remember
where/how to add it directly to the config file.

BTW, should I plan on a reinstall when K12LTSP 6 final
is out or is yum update enough to do it?
