Hi,

when disabling the suse firewall, its not really disabled, but leaves a rule
that does a state match and sets the policy of the INPUT chain to drop. When I
disable the firewall I would expect that iptables is set to the default
settings of letting all connections in, not that all connections are disabled.
(This is very bad for situations where you have a problem e.g. with cups not
finding other printers with the firewalls default configuration and you disable
the firewall and it still does nothing so you try other things...)

greets

Dennis
