why did my firewall start


hi experts

i got a centos instance that I recently rebooted, after reboot I found the iptable is running. previously i had turned it off but for some reason it started again.

this is the run level for ip table:
Code:
0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
I am trying to figure out if with this combo, iptable auto starts? because 6 is for system reboot and if it was off then that means it shouldn't be started right?

thanks

3 or 5 are the standard run levels. 3 for CLI, 5 for GUI. iptables is on in both cases.

You probably used "service iptables stop" to shut it off. This is only temporary. If you want to disable it permanently you need to use "chkconfig iptables off" as well.
