-Updated 09.03.2020 for OpenSuse Leap 15.1.+Updated 09.03.2020 for OpenSuse Leap 15.1. I needed to allow all access from my local virtual guest to my Linux box. Why an earth would I go through multiple steps and custom scripts when I can accomplish my access with a one simple line in /​etc/​sysconfig/​iptables?​ All in all my iptables config is just a few lines, compared to multiple files and custom scripts of SuSEFirewall.
  
 I tried to say it in a decent manner but I just cannot keep this inside me. SuSEfirewall is just terrible. But that is just me who has used /​etc/​sysconfig/​iptables since its arrival to CentOS / RHEL. I am sure it manages to do well when in client use but still I think it is important to learn to use iptables so you know what you're really doing. And if you're ever into servers then you must do it like this anyway. I tried to say it in a decent manner but I just cannot keep this inside me. SuSEfirewall is just terrible.
