stopping the linux firewall for azureus


I have been using azureus to download torrent files. I tried for weeks to get it downloading properly as the fast download ports were not working as they should.

I had been mucking around with my router trying to get it to forward ports to my computer, however now I think it was linux not the router because after running the program in Windows it works brilliantly.

Since I had guardDog installed I was using its "shut down firewall" feature to cancel the firewall. However now that it works fine in Windows I suspect the firewall was not closed properly.

Can someone tell me how to stop all network security in Fedora Core 1.

thanks.

well, use the apps' own methods like the one you described above....

...or use the hard way:

Code:
su
Password:
ps -e | less
kill -9 PID
where PID is the process ID of a firewalling application you see from ps :P note that this is the brutal way to stop things. I don't really think you should use this, but if it's the last method you can think of, try out but after it you need to either start the apps/services again manually or reboot (when you want them on again).

I'd first try to configure the security apps, only then shut them down.
