- to be able to get rid of firewalld, and keep using iptables 
as a service

        yum -y install iptables-services

and chkconfig off and stop the firewalld and chkconfig on and 
start iptables

I assume this will be a transitional presence, as the 
firewalld scripting becomes more familiar, and seemingly from 
your report, less unfamiliar.  I would miss iptables, because 
we do several thousand manipulations a day to block 'scanners'
