Incredible 13-13.8 on SL 6.9. I have disabled fail2ban, iptables using chkconfig. I did find a cron entry where iptables was being restarted and commented that out. Yet, I'm still having iptables come back to life after a reboot. How can I kill it completely? I have a firewall in front of my PBX managing my security for me, and iptables is actually causing an issue where sometimes my inbound calls will not connect, likely because I haven't whitelisted all the potential originating IPs from my provider.

Anyone have any pointers? Is there another service that is reliant upon iptables aside from fail2ban, port knock maybe?

Why not modify /etc/sysconfig/iptables and make it wide open. Then if it starts, it doesn't do anything. Is the IPtables causing issues for you?

Ah, that's a good idea. Yeah, if I stop iptables, I don't have issues with phone calls coming in from Flowroute. I haven't taken the time to add the 4 or 5 different ip blocks to the allowed list, would rather just kill iptables since it's redundant in this particular setup.

Thanks!
