Petite uses standard iptables. The iptables rules file is /etc/sysconfig/iptables
Easiest way to add a port to firewall is using the command line.
i.e. to open port 80 (http port)
To save the rule so it will apply on boot:
To temporarily disable the firewall, login as root and issue the following:
service iptables stop
To start it again, simply issue
service iptables start
To disable it permanently (so it won't start on boot)
login as root and issue the following:
chkconfig --del iptables
