Red face Quesiton about "FIREWALL setting" in "SETUP"--please help out

Hi all,

I know there's a bug come with RedHat 7.2. That is firewall settings in "SETUP" command. When I change the firewall level to "no firewall" or "custmize", everything seems to be very good. But if I run "SETUP" to see the firewall settings again, it will return to "HIGH LEVEL".
My question is: When I run setup to change the firewall settings, which file am I modifying? I wanna modify the file directly without running this "SETUP" any more.

That's the spirit! Dump the pretty GUI stuff, get your hands soaked in elbow grease!

/etc/sysconfig/ipchains is the file you're looking for. If you're feeling adventurous, check out all the files in the /etc/sysconfig/ directory.

If you want to disable the firewall, log in as root and type:

service ipchains stop
