What?

I'm not a huge vi/vim fan, but you certainly can insert multiple lines of text with vi without it adding automatic line wrap and what not.

ed is what I consider a line editor.

I've never had favorable multiline with editors using a terminal. Mostly why I group them in with line editors like ed. Just my experience and point of view, but it's just that only.

You must try to understand what you expect each step to do, and you must read, and understand the messages returned by each command. Otherwise your result is just gibberish.

+1

If OP did all that stuff as root, I think he needs a lot of reading about the Linux basics.

Yes, as I'm studying and learning every day too.

No, they are really friendly, what happens is Slackware is not a 'hold your hand' type of distro,
so some hours of read, search and experiment is expected.


Break your Slackware install as many times you need. You will learn a lot trying to fix it (as I do )

Your intention to study more, read more and learn more, expressed more than once in this thread, is a noble one.

But it does nothing - absolutely nothing - to solve the problem which is the subject of this thread, namely the problem of setting up a firewall on Slackware. A thread started by none other than yourself.

There's no need for high drama or gnashing of teeth regarding this problem. Just show us the content that was generated when you visited Eric's Easy Firewall Generator page; then tell us how you tried to save it to /etc/rc.d/; and, finally, tell us how you made that file executable and what errors, if any, came up when you restarted the computer.

Answering just those very simple questions will get you a lot farther, a lot faster, than all those solemn posts of yours about how you intend to study more widely and more deeply some time in the never-never. Try to focus systematically on just the problem at hand, namely, the firewall problem, and the specific steps you have taken or are about to take to resolve this one problem in your effort to learn Slackware. List the specific steps you have taken and post the content of any files you have created or edited along the way, and your firewall problem will be solved before evening.

Thanks Gezley. I will look into it when I get out of work. I'll figure it out on my own. Ill just read the instructions more carefully which I plan to do during my break here shortly. We can close this thread.

Thank you Reaper and notKlaatu. I used a text editor and it worked
