How to disable Redhat firewall?

Every time I want to disable it it seems it is still running : the never ending story you know. An dperhaps this causes the other problem I currently have : see my post "Problem with ethernet/internet".

Thanks for any idea

In my redhat i use the command line. type lokkit and you will see the settings and if you have permission change it, but I hesitate to be online without it!

Thanks for the help!

OK. Terminal then type "lokkit" and set the parameter.
It works. I wanted to disable it just to check if it wasn't it that prevented me from accessing the network since the security was the highest.

The other problem isn't solved yet but Ilearn a lot : many thanks guys!
