linux 8 firewall
Posted 08 February 2003 - 04:16 PM
i am a super nub to linux.
Installed linux 8, and for some reason - does't matter which user i am logged on as (root/myself) - if i try to change the firewall rules using the gui provided in linux - the rules won't save. they will always jump back to what they were.
and my firewall is stuck on high security so that i can't run anything!
what do i do???
thak you for your help.

What you can do, is save it as high and look at the file "/etc/sysconfig/iptables" and notice what it says and looks like...
Now, save it as what you want, and lokk the the file again see that it changes. This is what you want.
Other than that welcome to the ever expanding world.
BTW, I replied to your other posting as well...

i work in a secondary school and got hold of an old hub and about 8 200mmx machines. the plan is to use rh8 as is making use of the more easily configurable desktop ans then use a lighter windows manager and file manager but that Security Level configuration Screen had me beat
