Currently, i am writing a webmin module for configuring a SuSEfirewall.
In this module i need to know if the firewall is already running.=20

How can i see, if there is a running SuSEfirewall on the current system?

Some things i already figured out:
- SuSEfirewall ist not found via ps-command. ( Only when the script is =
there is a process )
- using a ipchains -L outputs the current rules. If no firewall is set =
the default policies are
to accept all ( okay, half of the work is done , but....). But it does =
not show if the rules are set by
SuSEfirewall. There might be another firewall lurking in the system. I =
don=B4t think, that i should
overwrite ipchains-rules if there is another wall.

How can i be sure of the "running" SuSEfirewall? Anyone got an idea?

Please send answers per PM.
