Fedora Firewall

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone tell me how I turn off the firewall in Fedora core 3? It seems to be blocking the ports I need open and I don't know how to open those ports.

The firewall you mention is probably the firewall implemented on the kernel called iptables. I think that in order to disable it you have to type "iptables -F" but I am not sure.

You can always install a front-end for iptables and disable the firewall from there.
