Firewall Problems


I have recently upgraded to SuSE 8.2 from 8.0 and am having trouble with the personal Firewall settings keeping me from getting any internet service. I can connect (using Kppp) and get to the server but that is it. I thought it was the modem at first but my ISP says I am connecting at 49000K. According to my modem monitor I am only connecting at 1k and not recieving any packets. The Personal firewall on 8.2 installs automatically and does not give you any input to the settings. The frustrating part is that there is no documentation on the personal firewall just on SuSEfirewall2 and that is not helpful. If anyone can provide a script to shut this off until I can get the internet connections corrected i would appreciate it. My machine is a gateway 450 esentials 450 MHz processor with maxtor 40g and IBM 10g hard drives running dual boot with windoz 98se. thanks for any assistance.

If you don't want the Personal Firewall to start automatically, why don't you try editing the rc.config file. And, if SuSE 8.2 still has YaST2(I'm strongly assuming that it does) check the 'Control Center', and under the 'System' section there should be an option to edit the rc.config file from a GUI, if you feel so inclined to do so for some reason. Hope that helps.

I apologize. If you weren't aware, the rc.config file is the file that controls what is started on boot, and what is not. Including firewalls(SuSE personal firewall), http daemons(apache), etc. It is located at etc/rc.config, in case you decided not to use the GUI editor.

Hey Sword, This is what I did. In SuSE8.2 the rc file has been moved to etc/sysconf/ and looked in the personel firewall file. There is an entry in the script that explains the default is BLOCK_ALL_INCOMING_CONNECTIONS"". there is a note that says yes no longer works to turn off the personal firewall but it also says thet in the script that anything other than " " or "no" will disable the firewall. So I changed the script to read BLOCK_ALL_INCOMING_CONNECTIONS " OFF" and I now have internet connections and connecting at about 49k using kppp. Thanks to all for your information. It made me look in areas of the kernel that I would not have thought of otherwise..
