Description Michael Monreal 2010-06-10 10:08:48 UTC
Basicly, I want to be able to disable the fedora firewall using a script. I know that I can disable the iptables service but I want to keep system-config-firewall working (to re-enable the fw at some point for example).

system-config-firewall-tui only seems to offer an interactive mode. Some simple command line options like "--disable" and "--enable" would be nice.

Comment 1 Michael Monreal 2010-06-10 10:11:10 UTC
Alternatively, maybe you could provide some simple commands that system-config-firewall runs when disabling the firewall using the button?

Comment 2 Thomas Woerner 2010-06-10 13:20:10 UTC
The command for firewall modifications in a shell is lokkit.

Please have a look at lokkit --help.

"lokkit --disabled" and "lokkit --enabled" are the commands you are looking for.
