Disable firewall and selinux, for sure:
setenforce 0
iptables -F

Then try to connect to iSCSI.

Do you have some error messages in /var/log/messages or in command output when trying to connect?


Hello Nopius, sorry for the delay. I will test that and let you know.


Maybe I am doing something wrong here, but the problem is not the firewall. Are there any simple instructions on how to configure iSCSI on CentOS 5.2
I finally solved the problem. It was connected to the iscsi, it was just that I was not able to see the connection os an icon on the "Computer".
