Hey all...quick question...
I'm rewriting my modular iptables script(s) and am wondering something. Currently, when I stop the script (# firewall stop), it just flushes all the tables. What if I want to stop iptables altogether? A ps aux listing doesn't show anything that hints me to iptables except for inetd. Is there a specific way to kill or turn off iptables altogether?
Basically, I'm going to include an option "flush" to flush the tables from the script, and "stop" will shut down all gateway/nat/masquerading on the box altogether. Sort of an emergency network lockdown feature. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!
