    Red Hat installation Firewall / iptables


    The Redhat installation has a firewall setting that was configured by someone else before I took it over. When asked to modify the firewall, I went to iptables and developed a script with some rules. It didn't work as I envisioned. So, I thought to ask if the Redhat firewall that was configured could be interfering with the iptables firewall, or do they feed into the same ruleset?

    I would like clarification on this. I prefer iptables from the command line, as it seems more powerful and configurable.

    RedHat's Firewall is done with iptables.
    It just stores the iptables rules in /etc/sysconfig/iptables

    You can make your own rules and save them as well with:

    Code:
    services iptables save

    You just active your iptables service use /etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables start

    or you can read this document.
