Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm using a dedicated host. Unfortunately, when I use x windows with xming, it tends to freeze up the x windows session. This is keeping me from calling system-config-securitylevel and making changes to the firewall. Is there a way to do it on the command line?

Yes, it is called iptables.

The CentOS wiki has written a nice piece together about it: http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Network/IPTables

@nikhil Indeed. Read, Learn, and Inwardly Digest NetFilter/IPTables. If you're admin'ing CentOS boxen, you need to understand how they're secured and this is an important part. –  Magellan Mar 18 '12 at 6:03
