Setting Firewall off

Post#1 by Dave99 » 19 Apr 2016, 21:31

Hi all

Any one know how to permanently set firewall to off?

Using a Porteus box for quick http tests on an intranet and it's a pain to every time go into System Tools --> Porteus Setting Centre --> ......

Running Desktop Edition v3.0 (kernel 3.13.6) LXDE

T.I.A.

Salutations... :good:

The firewall default is OFF. If you used the "changes" cheatcode and made changes that turned it ON... then change the firewall to OFF in "Porteus Settings Centre".
Otherwise... if you prefer a "changes" module or file backup select it accordingly in "Porteus Settings Centre".

"Best Regards"... :beer:

Just make sure the rc file doesn't have the executable bit set.

Code: Select all

chmod -x /etc/rc.d.rc.FireWall
Then when Porteus starts it won't execute the start script for the firewall.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

Hi fullmoonremix and brokenman

Thank you for responding and helping.

I'm going to use brokenman's idea of permissions on the rc.FireWall file as it's the easiest
but it's nice to know there are options.
