or disabled, the state will be retained across reboots.

Before removal of the IPFilter package using swremove, the IPFilter
module must be disabled.
HP recommends that you enable or disable IPFilter when interrupting
network connectivity is not disruptive. HP recommends that you do not
enable or disable HP-UX IPFilter when critical network applications are
running. Enabling or disabling IPFilter briefly brings down all IP
interfaces on the system, then brings up only the IP interfaces config‐
ured in the /etc/rc.config.d/netconf and /etc/rc.config.d/netconf-ipv6
files. IP addresses not configured in the netconf or netconf-ipv6 file,
such as Serviceguard relocatable IP addresses, are not re-enabled.
