[Firewall] Restart for firewall rules only

I am using MV Pro5.0 (2.6.18). The reason I am using AIF in the first place are to avoid diving into the iptables world, and use its firewall infrastructure.

Do you recommend to define my NAT sessions manually and keep the AIF for firewall only? 

Hai Shalom.

Yes, avoid using AIF - instead you will use your OS specific ip[6]tables stop start script ... but which Linux distro are you using?

It could be as simple as -

service iptables restart
service ip6tables restart
