How to check the firewall settings


Hey folks,

Very short question:
During RH installation I selected which level of firewall protection I wanted. I have tried quite a few settings so I forgot which level I choose.

How can I check this?

ThNx in Advance,

GrTzzz....
Paul van Leeuwen

Ps, From shell please, don't have a DE installed

When installing I saw 3 chooses:
  • high
  • low
  • disabled

With one does the following implement?:
Code:
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT 2 packets, 120 bytes)
 pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination         

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT 0 packets, 0 bytes)
 pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination         

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT 2 packets, 120 bytes)
 pkts bytes target     prot opt in     out     source               destination
And is there a simple command to swich between these presets?

ThNx!

GrTzzz....
