Re: Iptables not saving...



You shouldn't have to do that. That you had to do this suggests that you
don't have your firewall service(s) (iptables and optionally ip6tables)
turned on.

Firewall was set to disabled!

You generally want them turned on as soon as you turn on networking.

You can see whether on this is true using chkconfig, such as:
[bruno wolff ~]$ chkconfig --list iptables
iptables        0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

Mine was st to:
[root mars ~]# chkconfig --list iptables
iptables        0:off   1:off   2:on    3:off   4:on    5:off   6:off

Because the supplied init script specifies that this service is supposed to
be used in levels 2, 3, 4 and 5 when it is running, you should be able to
simplify the above to:
chkconfig iptables on


WORKED!
I remember when I installed FC3, I specifically disabled the firewall.
I guess this is what caused iptables not to start on level 3 & 5.  I
also noticed that the firewall service was still diabled after reboot.

THIS SOLVED THE PROBLEM!  Many Thanks!
