This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-stop-start-and-disable-enable-firewall-on-redhat-7-linux-system
When I disabled the firewall, do I still need to do the remove commands? On RHEL7, after issuing the disable command it gave up 2 more lines saying it removed symlinks to those targets:
Removed symlink /etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.fedoraproject.FirewallD1.service. Removed symlink /etc/systemd/system/basic.target.wants/firewalld.service.
So I’m thinking I don’t need to actually remove those .service files as they are effectively cut off from being accessed by the usual daemons

Bill i think you are right… I am not a Linux Guru by any means but i noticed that the disable service command above seems to do the same thing as Uninstalling the Microsoft service in windows…
