The following procedure deactivates Oracle Solaris IP Filter packet filtering by flushing the packet filtering rules from the active filtering rule set. The procedure does not disable Oracle Solaris IP Filter. You can reactivate Oracle Solaris IP Filter by adding rules to the rule set.
Assume a role that includes the IP Filter Management rights profile, or become superuser.
You can assign the IP Filter Management rights profile to a role that you create. To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

Remove incoming packet filtering rules.
# ipf -Fi
