# If you used the startfw which I wrote, this script will stop it, i.e.,
# it flushes all the chains in iptables and unloads the ip* modules from kernel
# I (Jan Labanowski, jkl@ccl.net) took it from (I believe) Dirk Bartley
# presentation from http://www.kalamazoolinux.org/presentations/
# Namely, the actual file was:: 
# http://www.kalamazoolinux.org/presentations/20010417/flush
# 
# When you want to stop the firewall just type
#   ./flushfw
# I assume that that on a production machine, this script will reside in
# /usr/sbin/ and will be only read/write/executable by root (700)
# I also use this script in the /etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables-jkl script
# which starts iptables on boot.
