I just received my issue of Sys Admin Magazine and the article "Halted Firewalls" caught my eye: how in the world would such a thing work??? Isn't that a contradiction in terms?
Well, it's an interesting read, and from a system admin point of view pretty straight-forward. You learn a bit more about the startup scripts (in Red Hat in particular) and how a Linux box can "run" even when it's halted. Hmmm.
The article isn't on-line, but you can read about it here:
(Hint: The key is in removing certain startup/shutdown scripts.)
