Disable firewall in Redhat 8.0!


is it possible to disable this "service" or whatever it is using a CLI? if I set my firewall to "disabled" and save/exit its still "high" when I open it next time. I also tried lokkit with the same result, guess this has to do with permissions? but on which files?

I think you're refering to iptables...

You need to do the following:

chkconfig --list |grep iptables

If the service is set to "on" then:

chkconfig iptables off

That should stop the iptables service starting on boot up. To stop it if it's running now do:

service iptables stop

Good luck!

Guess what i'll just hop in on this conversation. I'm using 2.6 kernel and it doesnt use iptables or ipchains. What firewall does it use because i want it DISABLED! so i can run my video game server and get it listed in the GameSpy gamebrowser.

There are no firewalls in Linux outside of IPtables/Chains (and some graphical interfaces for them), AFAIK. Linux doesn't need them because these built in versions work very well. I don't run Red Hat, but I'm sure it has something in it's system administration tools for enabling and disabling services. I know I've got something similar provided by Gnome that I use occasionally. If you're sure you don't have IPtables running then you're more likely having some network configuration problems.
