From LinuxBSDos.com.Firewalld and Ufw, the Uncomplicated FireWall, are two firewall management applications installed in some of the most popular Linux distributions. Ufw is the default firewall application installed in distributions based on Debian and Ubuntu, while Firewalld is the default in Fedora, where it replaced the old firewall application when Fedora 18 was released.
The story starts when I read the news about Linux Trojan.
I tried to block the IP of that trojan but one led to another and now I'm confused about Fedora firewall.
However I wonder if anyone can help to figure out what's the difference between firewall and firewalld?
Should I download firewalld on my system?
Which one is better original firewall comes with fedora 17 or firewalld?
I have recently replaced Windows in favour of Fedora 18 on my PC. I have been using Fedora and CentOS for a while but am far from an expert though. I am running tomcat 6 on port 8090 and want to redirect requests coming in on port 80 to 8090. I have managed this using the firewall gui for external connections but cannot work out how to do this for local connections from my own browser.
Hi. I'm trying to set up a samba client in my notebook. But firewalld it's blocking whatever port nmb service uses. I try to add port 137 138 139 tcp and udp to it, but it keeps blocking them. I've tried enabling samba-client in the services tab, but with no luck.
while looking into firewalld, I got two questions:
1) What is the difference between panic mode and blocking, listed in the options menu in firewall-config?
2) How does it collaborate with iptables and nftables? Is it build on top of iptables or is it an alternative, trying to replace iptables? And what about nftables, which also tries to replace iptables?
I have an OpenVPN server on Fedora 19 with 2 clients - 1 client on the same LAN as the server, and the other on the internet.
I want the 2 clients to be able to talk to each other thru the tunnel and, if I stop firewalld.service on the server, they can.
How can I configure firewalld to allow this traffic?
