After reboot /etc/sysconfig/iptables changed

Post by archana » 2014/03/06 10:26:06

Hi,
I have configured the firewall on CentOS with the iptables. I am able to access my website on the CentOS server from windows PC but when I reboot server the /etc/sysconfig/iptables was changed and I was failed to access my website.

Kindly let me know If there is any way to save iptables files permanently so that I could access my website from other client machine.

Thanks!

Code: Select all

service iptables save
That will save the currently running rules. You can also edit /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config and change it so that it saves the rules on restart and/or stop but mostly this is not a good idea - e.g. you add a bad rule and lock yourself out and then that rule is saved when you stop iptables.
