I'm playing with the RHEL7 RC (I know the RHEL7 GA is there, but CentOS 7 is not) and I'm coming across some problems with firewalld.
I wanted to install the HAProxy package and set up the firewall configuration.
But there is no HAProxy/firewalld configuration, I had to create it myself!
In addition, I discovered that all the firewalld service configurations are in the firewalld package (they are
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.
I have a system on which I run libvirt and recently used fedup to upgrade from f18 to f20. Now, on f20, in troubleshooting a possibly separate problem I disabled firewalld. Normally disabling firewalld leaves you without a firewall. On this system something snuck in from libvirt.
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.
Ufw (Uncomplicated FireWall) is the firewall application that comes with a default installation of Linux Mint 17 – Cinnamon or MATE. This article shows how to replace it with FirewallD, a firewall application that has support for dynamic rules and network zones. It originated from the Fedora project.
