RHEL 7 / CentOS 7 Disable Firewalld and use iptables

Firewalld is bit complicated so it is better to continue with  iptables.

Here I am describing, how to disable Firewalld and use iptables.

1. Disable Firewalld Service.

[root@rhel-centos7-tejas-barot-linux ~]# systemctl mask firewalld

2. Stop Firewalld Service.

[root@rhel-centos7-tejas-barot-linux ~]# systemctl stop firewalld

3. Install iptables service related packages.

[root@rhel-centos7-tejas-barot-linux ~]# yum -y install iptables-services

4. Make sure service starts at boot:

[root@rhel-centos7-tejas-barot-linux ~]# systemctl enable iptables

# If you do not want ip6tables, You can skip following command.

[root@rhel-centos7-tejas-barot-linux ~]# systemctl enable ip6tables

5. Now, Finally Let’s start the iptables services.

[root@rhel-centos7-tejas-barot-linux ~]# systemctl start iptables

# If you do not want ip6tables, You can skip following command.

[root@rhel-centos7-tejas-barot-linux ~]# systemctl start ip6tables

Firewalld Service is now disabled and stop, You can use iptables.
