Description David Tonhofer 2005-12-15 10:42:11 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
Add the following lines to "/etc/sysconfig/iptables-config", before the
description of IPTABLES_MODULES_UNLOAD:



----------- Existing lines ----------- 
# Unload modules on restart and stop
#   Value: yes|no,  default: yes
# This option has to be 'yes' to get to a sane state for a firewall
# restart or stop. Only set to 'no' if there are problems unloading netfilter
# modules.

----------- Additional lines ----------- 
# Setting to "yes" also cuts all existing TCP connections if a firewall restart
# or stop is issued.



The above remark highlights a difficulty that may occur with remotely 
maintained systems.
