[ubuntu-us-ut] stopping network manager

Maybe I am looking at this the wrong way.  But would it be easier to just us some iptables script and/or firestarter just to temporarily lock down the web?

Seems like a lot of fuss to go through at some public hotspot.

ccurley at dragon:~$ ll  /etc/dbus-1/event.d/
total 20
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2007-10-23 11:02 .

Yup. So

/etc/dbus-1/event.d/25NetworkManager [start|stop]

should work for the OP. (I can't test right now, as I'm doing other
things that require the network.)
