Look here and here. :wink:
The best way to do this quickly if your just test is to run:
If you just run stop it will flush the rules out of the system and cause all kinds of headaches. It will give you a status update once you do this, so donít worry, should look like this:
Flushing firewall rules: [ OK ]
Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: filter [ OK ]
Unloading iptables modules: [ OK ]
