Hi smetterd,
There should be a file called /etc/sysconfig/iptables which contains the firewall settings.

Try typing 'redhat-config' and then press TAB twice. There might be something like redhat-config-firewall but there is nothing on my machine.

I suggest a shell wrapper for IP tables called, firehol.  It greatly simplifies creation and administration of the IP tables firewall.  You can find it at http://firehol.sourceforge.net

Install webmin (http://www.webmin.com), click on Networking, then Linux Firewall

It's a very easy to use interface.

Type setup on the console or in an xterm and choose firewall.

Hi,

   For RedHat 9,
/usr/bin/redhat-config-securitylevel

   This is GUI. Besides, /usr/sbin/lokkit is text-based table interface of iptables.

Hi,

   By the way, if you don't find redhat-config-securitylevel, then download from
http://download.fedoralegacy.org/redhat/9/os/i386/redhat-config-securitylevel-1.1.1-3.noarch.rpm
and
# rpm -ivh redhat-config-securitylevel-1.1.1-3.noarch.rpm
to install it.
