this is a development list, i posted that link because normally
someone types "Fedora disable firewall" in Google, my question
was more meant why do you discuss on a technical list inside
security related topic if you miss basics

fine *but* that thread is *not* the right place

i even go so far to say you do *not* need nor *should*
you disable your firewall, you should learn how to
open ports and which one you are *really* need to
be opened instead throw away any security barrier
beause it is so much easier not close the door and
hope after coming home your TV is still there

that's not the point

the point is that you discuss in a security related topic
while your problem is far off-topic

no, there is nothing quite clear because we talk about a
linux system which may have seen dist-upgrades from times
before firewalld even existed (like all my systems) or
highly customized and *because* of that i posted a command
to disable *both* possibilities *additionally* to show how
find such informations at your own
