F15 System/Administration/Firewall?

Good morning all.

I wondered about my Firewall settings (installed F15 a few days ago) and realize I can't find the Firewall in any menus (Gnome3).

Then I realized at the top of the screen, I have (from left to right):
Browser icon
Network connection
User panel

I seem to recall that in Fedora 13, there was a "System" menu either after Applications, or after Places.

Choosing Applications, System Tools, System Settings still shows no Firewall choice.

Am I missing something?

If that fails, open a Terminal and type "setup." you can configure the Firewall from there too.

Re: F15 System/Administration/Firewall?

Thanks for the suggestions. I could have sworn I had Firewall last week after moving from F14 to F15, but then couldn't find it again.

Am I right in thinking that F15/Gnome3 does not have "System" or "Administration" on the header bar of the screen? Just the Applications and Places?
