Re: IPTables

RH 7.x defaults to using ipchains...but both sets of modules are there for 
you to use.

First, "chkconfig ipchains off"
Next, "service ipchains stop"
Next, "rmmod ipchains"
Now, "modprobe iptables"
Then, "chkconfig iptables on"

That should get you the building blocks. You should now be able to build 
your iptables firewall, then issue "service iptables save" so that the 
configured firewall comes up every time you restart your system.
