I haven't done that on Fedora, but the Red Hat Linux tool firewall/security
utility always started from afresh when you ran it, it never loaded in the
old configuration for you to modify. It's confusing and not very helpful.
I ended up making a script of iptable commands to set my firewall options.
That gives me something with a permenent entry for my rules, and easily
modifiable (as well as I can add comments). I just run my script each time
I make a change to it. It applies the changes, and it saves the results
into the location that iptables looks for its configuration each time the
computer boots up (i.e. I don't have to run my script each boot time, only
when I make changes to it).
Disabling a firewall isn't a brilliant idea in this day and age. Generally
it's port 20 and 21 used for FTP serving.
If you insist on e-mailing me, use the reply-to address (it's real but
temporary). But please reply to the group, like you're supposed to.
