Disable Firewall in Redhat 9


Ok, I installed Redhat 9 and internet works fine, and so does the httpd. However I installed webCP and everything went fine. I'm not able to connect to any other port except 80 and 22 on the linux box from my pc? I'm using my PC to interact with the SSH. The box doesn't have a monitor, keyboard, or mouse. If there's a way to disable the firewall through SSH, please let me know, Thanks in advance

running these commands should do the trick:
Code:
iptables -F
iptables -F -t nat
iptables -F -t mangle

iptables -X
iptables -X -t nat
iptables -X -t mangle

iptables -P INPUT ACCEPT
iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
iptables -P FORWARD DROP
then to save the new iptables settings do a:
Code:
service iptables save
to learn about iptables go here: http://iptables-tutorial.frozentux.n...-tutorial.html

just my ...

PS: it's a much better idea to learn how to use iptables in such a way that you can configure it to allow ONLY the packets you want/need...

that must not have been the problem, because I still can't access port 81, or FTP for that matter, I appreciate the help though, who knows that may help me in the future.
