Thread: problem with SuSEfirewall2

    Question problem with SuSEfirewall2

    Hello,

    I had to stop Susefirewall per command line each session in order to get Opera and Chrome working properly.

    Is there a way to make a permanent change and stopping/not loading SuSEfirewall2 by booting?

    thanks, Alex

    yes there is but i STRONGLY DO NOT recommend you do it.

    IF you still wanna do it there are 2 options
    GUI mode using yast and text mode
    1. GUI mode:
    start Yast-Security and users-Firewall-StartUp- make sure you check Disable firewall automatic starting
    2. konsole(text) mode:
    chkconfig -d SuSEfirewall2_setup
    then
    chkconfig -l|grep firewall
    and make sure that firewall is disabled in all runlevels

    AGAIN: I STILL CONSIDER YOU SHOULD NOT DISABLE FIREWALL.

    Something is wrong if you have to disable the firewall to surf the web. The firewall normally does not block outgoing requests.

    I agree with ken_yap, you should fix the SiSEfirewall2 script first. What did you change in the Suse Firewall since you installed?

    Have you tried configuring it in Yast2 -> Firewall?

    thanks all 4 reply.

    Here is my /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2
    (quite long text, sorry you have to download the file)

    Actually I did not edit it so far.

    Maybe I could have changed "Automatic Starting" via YAST some months ago, cannot remember.
    It happened that I had to reinstall a lot of stuff after trying to full unistall pulse-audio.

    I am accessing internet from different places (work via LAN and home via WLAN-Router). It asks me psw for default-keyring.

    Q: How to see the ports which are blocked by Susefirewall2?

    thanks, Alex

    By now, after what you tell us now, this could be a real problem. Hard to tell whether everything needed is back in place. If you cannot browse, this has nothing to do with a default firewall (it allows surfing).

    If you are behing a firewalled router in your own local network, I don't see the point in not having a firewall running on your PC.
