Thread: iptables default rule

  1. #1

    Default iptables default rule

    Dear All,

    I have reinstalled the SUSE, by mistake i have enabled the firewall as a default which when i restart the firewall kicks me out so i needed to know how i can ALLOW ALL as a default SUSE firewall rule now. So that when i restart the firewall ALLOW ALL should be the rule.
    Best Regards,
    Ghulam Yaseen

    Do you mean to disable the firewall?
    Code:
    su
    rcSuSEfirewall2 stop
    openSUSE 12.3 (x86_64) with Kernel 3.7.10-1.16-desktop and KDE 4.11.2 on MacBook Pro
    Latest MS Windows version used: Win95

    That doesn't sound right. Maybe you didn't really disable the firewall, but somehow set it to a very restrictive setting, maybe a default of DROP for all incoming connections. When the firewall is really disabled, everything is allowed. When the firewall is "disabled" by your reckoning, do a:

    Code:
    iptables -L
