Firewall - iptables inconsitency

Fedora 15 both gnome-3 and KDE. After i generate a set of rules with the iptables and do an iptables -S i can see them. If i modify the rules generated with the firewall with iptables and to iptable-S i can see the modification is there. If i further do iptables-save > /etc/sysconfi/iptables, and iptables-restore /etc/sysconfig/iptables, at reboot when i check with iptables -S, the modification is still there and is persistent. But if i go in the firewall and do any modification and click the apply button, the modification made and saved with iptables disappear if i check with iptables -S but it's still in etc/sysconfi/iptables. If i do iptables-restore i will load it again etc.

Re: Firewall - iptables inconsitency

Try using
Code:
/etc/init.d/iptables save
Otherwise you are using 2 different tools to manage your rules, iptables via the command line and the graphical tool (system-config-firewall).

LOL they're not two different tools, system-config-firewall is just a wrapper around iptables...

System-config-firewall isn't able to load custom configurations, (changes made outside system-config-firewall). Best to do it one way or the other.
