Redhat 9 Firewall Issue


I installed Redhat 9 and can't get the firewall to accept incoming remote SSH connections. I have the following rules in /etc/sysconfig/iptables but still no luck. If I turn off iptables it works fine. Any ideas?

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A OUTPUT -p udp --sport 22 -j ACCEPT

I found the answer ..............

However I have another question. I configured the system for the lilo boot loader and it comes up in graphical mode. Is there a way to make the boot loader default to text mode upon boot?

1) What was the answer that you found - please post it here, so that all may benefit.

2) For LILO - check out /etc/lilo.conf. There should be an option there. Make sure to run "lilo" as root after you have edited that file.

3) Are you aware that Redhat 9 is considered legacy? It was released in 2003, and support was discontinued in 2004. I strongly recommend that you upgrade to a more recent, supported distro. RH9 no longer receives security updates.

The answer to my firewall question was simple really. I ran "lokkit" from the command line and it brought up the text based firewall configuration and I simply chose 'ssh" from there.

I am aware Redhat 9 is legacy but wasn't aware there were no updates offered for it so I switched back to Fedora 6 (lucky I didn't delete that). I like Fedora 6 better than Rehat 9 anyway.

Thanks for all your help.
