iptables 3306 rules not saving

Posted on 2014-09-04

I am inserting the rule property :: saving :: restarting and the rule is not committed. I am doing the following:

Step 1:

iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 3306 -j ACCEPT

Step 2:

service iptables save

Step 3:

service iptables restart

Step 4:

I simply rebooted the machine.

When I do:

iptables --list-rules
I don't see the rule committed and I cannot connect from the outside.

Note:
I saw a complex version of this rule: iptables -I INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp -s 1.1.1.2 -d 1.1.1.1 --destination-port 3306 -j ACCEPT

Note: When I tried to use the setup system-config I got the following error:

ERROR: FirewallD is active, please use firewall-cmd.

iptables/system-config-firewall-tui are now replaced by firewalld.
to get old behaviour disable and stop firewalld (chkconfig firewalld off ; service firewalld stop)
enable and start ip(6)tables

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

firewalld is managed by firewall-config (both have manual pages)

iptables:
yum install system-config-firewall-tui
now run system-config-firewall-tui and allow at least SSH protocol (press once OK, it saves config, but fails, then cancel to exit, without this you lose remote access to system)
chkconfig iptables on ; service iptables start
chkconfig ip6tables on ; service ip6tables start

(between the lines you will learn something about how RHEL7 is different from RHEL6)

No, you have to explicitly switch it off and stop
Then configure rule for SSH (http, ... etc to allow extant service)
And then start and enable iptables
