Why after installing from scratch the iptables or upgrading the iptables
Then iptables from chkconfig display on ?
How to avoid chkconfig iptables on , after installling/upgradin iptables ?
- remark we want to avoid to perform chkconfig iptables off after installing the iptables
Real example from my redhat machine version 6
service iptables status Firewall is stopped. # chkconfig --list | grep iptables iptables 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off # chkconfig iptables off # chkconfig --list | grep iptables iptables 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off yum remove iptables . . . chkconfig --list | grep iptables show nothing ( as should be ) yum install iptables . . .
After iptables was installed Successfully , We can see that chkconfig is on - why ?
# chkconfig --list | grep iptables iptables 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
The critical problem with this is:
After reboot iptables service will be running and we want to avoid this
Please advise how to avoid iptables chkconfig on after installing iptables package
