    Default Quick one - How do I temporarily disable the firewall?

    I need to temporarily disable the susefirewall to troubleshoot connectivity problems. If I just go into YAST and stop the firewall is that enough or do I need to do anything else like kill a service or reboot too?

    Thanks. Well I know it's not my firewall that's the problem then.
