How Do I Disable Firewall?
First login as the root user.
Next enter the following three commands to disable firewall.
# service iptables save
# service iptables stop
# chkconfig iptables off
If you are using IPv6 firewall, enter:
# service ip6tables save
# service ip6tables stop
# chkconfig ip6tables off
Fully Disabling SELinux
Fully disabling SELinux goes one step further than just switching into permissive mode. Disabling will completely disable all SELinux functions including file and process labelling.
In Fedora Core and RedHat Enterprise, edit /etc/selinux/config and change the SELINUX line toSELINUX=disabled:
# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system. # SELINUX= can take one of these three values: # enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced. # permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing. # disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded. SELINUX=disabled # SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values: # targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected. # strict - Full SELinux protection. SELINUXTYPE=targeted
… and then reboot the system.
