Turn off firewall in RH8.0

I'm attempting to turn off the firewall (yes, we are in a secure network, as much as that means nowadays), not open to the internet, however, I can't get the firewall to turn off, it won't allow users to ftp to it, or use a terminal emulator to log in, or telnet. And whenever I try to disable the firewall Lokkit it always resets itself to high. Is there someone command line that I can do this? I miss linuxconf, seemed easier to configure the networking using that than this.

As root/root equivalent on your system, type the following:

# chkconfig --list | grep iptables

You'll see something similar to: iptables 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off

If you see "on" in rows 3, 4, and 5, it means the firewall will be started on system startup. To disable auto startup, type the following:

# chkconfig iptables off

How are you disabling the firewall? You can do so by typing the following:

# service iptables stop

If the "iptables stop" fails, try:

# service ipchains stop

Please let me know if the above doesn't work.

Hi Keith, that didn't work but I'm beginning to think that the firewall on my computer side isn't the problem, but on the network side may be the problem. Thanks, I learned something new.
