    setting firewall when provisioning RHAS 4

    Mark Jeffery



      I just tried the following kickstart settings when provisioning RH AS 4, and it seemed to work really well! (no need for post install script to turn of iptables).


      firewall --medium --trust eth0 --ssh --port 4750:tcp


      If you are brave, then you can turn off ssh as well!

          the following also works for functionally disabling the firewall during the post os install script phase of the kickstart file:


          -- METHOD 1, THE BRUTE FORCE WAY --

          /etc/init.d/iptables stop

          Mv /etc/rc3.d/s##iptables k##iptables

          Mv /etc/rc5.d/s##iptables k##iptables


          -- METHOD 2 --

          firewall --trust eth0


          -- METHOD 3 --

          /etc/init.d/iptables stop

          chkconfig --del iptables
