Need help with SUSE-Firewall

I just saved my iptables firewall script under SUSE like this:

cd /home/myusername/Documents

chmod +x firewall


service iptables save

My question is, what do I have to do next? In other words, do I have to do any further configuration inside the built-in SUSE-Firewall2 or do I only have to just enable it and thats it?

I am really really lost here. Once my iptables is saved with the commands above, what will I have to do next inside the SUSE-Firewall2?

Please explain in detail....

I'm not exactly sure what you are trying to do, and I don't have a lot of details for you. I do know where the SuSE firewall configuration is hiding. It is located in /ect/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2.

If I backed anything up, it would be this file. This contains various rules, including the ones used by SuSEfirewall2 to generate the iptables.
