    Access to a Redhat machine


    I'm trying to allow access to a Redhat machine on a LAN. On the network, there are several Windows computers that need access to it. At the moment, only one computer is able to ping it and ssh to it. In Redhat, what is blocking the pings and ssh attempts from those other Windows computers?

    Also, eventually I'd like to be able to access the Redhat machine from the internet. Any ideas?

    Try this, it will stop the Linux firewall.
    # service iptables stop

    What is the diff between the one box that can ping and the others that can't?

    I managed to get access to the Redhat 8 server remotely by configuring its iptables to accept my IP.

    When I try to save it by typing "service iptables save", I get the following message:
    Saving firewall rules to /etc/sysconfig/iptables: /etc/init.d/iptables: line 1: stat: command not found
    [FAILED]

    Does this mean the table hasn't been saved and how can I fix this?
    Also, how can I check for the permanency of it once saved correctly?
