    Hi

    I just run csfstop and the firewall stop as was not able to open my test site...

    Blocked but i do not know why :)

    Then i was able to view the site but after an hour about i was not able again to open the site and i had again to stop the firewall....

    So does it autostart?

    Thanks

    yes with CSF Firewall http://centminmod.com/csf_firewall.html, csfstop or service csf stop it will auto restart

    what are you trying to do ? disable CSF ? I don't advise it as CSF protects your server ;)

    Code:
    csf -h
    csf: v7.03 (generic)
    csf(1)                                                                  csf(1)
