How to disable Firewall in Linux

How to disable Firewall in Linux

Hello colleagues.

In today's article, I will tell you how to temporarily or completely stop the Firewall service on the server.

Firewall itself is a default built-in component to protect incoming and outgoing traffic on the server. If it bothers you, then you can turn it off, but it’s better not to do this, as the server’s protection will not be reliable enough.
It is better to determine what ports your software uses and add those ports to the Firewall rules.

I will tell you how to add rules to the Firewall in the next article. By default, the Linux Firewall is enabled.

The content of the article:

  1. Firewall status check.
  2. Temporarily stop Firewall.
  3. Stop Firewall permanently.

 

STEP 1. Checking the status of the Firewall.

To check whether the Firewall service is enabled or not, use the service or systemctl commands.

$. sudo service firewalld status

Or

$. sudo systemctl status firewalld
