How do I enable/disable my Iptables firewall? Print

  • 11

To start IP tables on your RedHat server, 
# service iptables start 

You can run the following command to stop iptabes: 
# service iptables stop 

It is also important to save your iptables configuration so that it is loaded again on the next reboot. This can be done by running: 

# service iptables save 

You can also set the iptables program to start on boot by running: 
# chkconfig iptables on
