disabling firewall doesn't work
Last modified: 2008-05-23 13:04:37 EDT
Description of problem:
I wanted to disable the firewall. I ran system-config-firewall as root,
selected 'disable' and 'apply'.
Showing firewall with 'iptables -L' still shows active firewall.
'service iptables stop' did the trick as usual.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start with default F9 configuration
2. run system-config-firewall
3. click disable,apply
iptables -L still shows active firewall (and it is blocking stuff)
Needed to disable firewall to be able to browse remote cups printer queues.
Just lazy I guess.
