How do I enable/disable my Iptables firewall
To start IP tables on your RedHat server,
# service iptables start

You can run the following command to stop iptabes:
# service iptables stop

It is also important to save your iptables configuration so that it is loaded again on the next reboot. This can be done by running:

# service iptables save

You can also set the iptables program to start on boot by running:
# chkconfig iptables on

Linux setting hostname and domain name of my server
Q. I would like to change hostname and domain name for my Linux server. Where can I set the local hostname and domain name of my server?

A. You can use hostname command to show or set the system's host name and dnsdomainname command to show the system's DNS domain name. But the changes are temporary if you use these commands.

Local hostname and domain name of your server defined in text configuration located in /etc directory.

If you are using Red Hat or Fedora Linux
