OpenSuSE: Disable firewall completely

I was wondering… why I can’t connect through ssh. sshd daemon is running fine, so I found out that OpenSuSE installs its stikin’ firewall by default and blocks everything. I’m pretty well protected behind enough high end security devices, and don’t need to micro-manage my connection. Here is how I disabled the firewall altogether:

/sbin/SuSEfirewall2 off

To start the firewall:

/sbin/SuSEfirewall2 on

If you want to temporarily disable your firewall:

/etc/init.d/SuSEfirewall2_setup stop

Enter the above line without “stop” and you will see all available switches.
