Re: [opensuse-security] How can I disable SuseFirewall on opensuse 10.3 and use my custom rules?

I never activate the SuSE Firewall, I always use my own rules.
Enter in yast, runlevel adminsitrator and erase from runlevel 3 and 5 the susefirewall

After, creting you own rule fileset, start with:

iptables -t nat -F
iptables -t filter -F

Both line FLUSH both tables: filter (firewall) and nat (masquerade, dnat and snat)

Hello everyone!
I use OpenSuse since v9.0 and sometimes I needed disable SuseFirewall and used script "iptables" from RedHat. It worked fine.. but I have troubles with OpenSuse 10.3. Of course I disabled Susefirewall from Yast and checked with chkconfig:
# chkconfig |grep wall
SuSEfirewall2_init off
SuSEfirewall2_setup off

Then I copied my script and enabled:
#chkconfig iptables on
# chkconfig -l iptables
iptables 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:off 5:on 6:off

But my script didn't work in boot time. And rules have discarded when I used "ifup dsl0" for VPN.
Last thing is the most annoying.
When I run my script manually :
/etc/init.d/iptables start everything is okey.

Why does SuseFirewall work?
What should I do?
Is it a bug?
