hi all, i am trying to disable firewall on my Linux8.0 but i am not able to. i go to "security level settings" and apply "No Firewall" but it doesn't work! when i go back to the same settings it says me firewall activated.. can anybody guide me? do i need to give more details? i am not a great user of linux as OS so i might be missing something obvious... thanks maulin
Looks like RHL8.0 has problems with ipchains. for me 'ipchains -L' output is different from what firewal-config shows. could it be problem with ipchains_save ?!!

redhat 8.0 uses iptables... not ipchains. i am not familiar with iptables, so i reinstalled redhat 7.2 for to use ipchains and then upgraded the packages i wanted. you might be able to turn iptables off and then install ipchains... i tried to do that, but there were some package dependancy issues that i could not resolve.

hello, i'll try to solve ur prob.... u must go to rootprompt n simply flush all the iptable enabled rules.......... u can check this by......#iptables -L THIS WILL SHOW U THE LIST OF FIREWALL RULES ENABLED.... now to turn off these..........flush all by.......#iptables -F n to delete any user defined chains use -x (chain name........) that u kan conferm from first command if u find any name other than input ,output,n forward then that shld b user defined so delete it.......... now check again thru #iptables -L U SHLD FiND........ [root@localhost root]# iptables -L Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT) target prot opt source destination
