This is a related question to a previous post. I'm trying to change my security lvl to medium and to allow telnet and what not in. After I change settings using either lokkit or gnome interface the options revert back to previous settings, ie high lvl security etc. Anyone know why it doesnt keep the changes? And yes I click okay to save it etc..

Hmm, Is there a way to go in and manually change the settings in some file?

Are you logging on as root when you do this?Does a root password prompt come up when you try to run lokkit?

Yes, I've done it both ways, as a user, and as the root. However, it didn't ask for a pword. I'm wondering if it's because the router I have has a builtin firewall?
