    If it's MDK10.1, then it's a 2.6.* kernel. IPchains has been deprecated since 2.2.* (IIRC). Therefore, you can turn off the firewall as follows (as root):

    Code:
    /sbin/iptables -F
    /sbin/iptables -X
    /sbin/iptables -Z
    
    /sbin/iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
    /sbin/iptables -P INPUT ACCEPT
    There's also a graphical way to do this, but I don't know it (nor do I really care to ). If it can't be done on CLI, it's not worth being done.

    Yu can disable the firewall graphically using Mandrake Control Center. It's in the network settings section and I believe it's security or something like that.
