Tweaking iptables

Hi all,

Have just installed Fedora 12 on a spare box to check it out and first impressions are favourable. However, the default firewall configuration leaves port 80 open (this isn't a server) and sets other ports to 'closed'or REJECT rather than 'stealth' or DROP.

Does anyone know where the relevant persistent iptables setting files are in a Fedora system to fix these problem? There's a firewall gui/genie but it doesn't provide much flexibility even in 'expert' mode.

This is ip6, by the way.

Don't they still use /etc/sysconfig/iptables for this?
