How to Disable Packet Filtering

This procedure removes all rules from the kernel and disables the service. If you use this procedure, you must enable IP Filter with the appropriate configuration files to restart packet filtering and NAT. For more information, see How to Enable and Refresh IP Filter.

Before You Begin

You must become an administrator who is assigned the IP Filter Management rights profile. For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.3.

  • To disable the service, use the svcadm command.
    # svcadm disable network/ipfilter

    To test or debug the service, you can remove rule sets while the service is running. For more information, see Working With IP Filter Rule Sets.
