It provides command line and graphical interfaces and is available in the repositories of most Linux distributions. Working with FirewallD has two main differences compared to directly controlling iptables: 1. FirewallD uses zones and services instead of chain and rules. 2. It manages rulesets dynamically, allowing updates without breaking existing sessions and connections. Note FirewallD is a wrapper for iptables to allow easier management of iptables rules–it is not an iptables replacement. While iptables commands are still available to FirewallD, it’s recommended to use only FirewallD commands with FirewallD. This guide will introduce you to FirewallD, its notions of zones and services, and show you some basic configuration steps. Use promo code DOCS10 for $10 credit on a new account.

Installing and Managing FirewallD FirewallD is included by default with CentOS 7 but it’s inactive. Controlling it is the same as with other systemd units. 1. To start the service and enable FirewallD on boot: sudo systemctl start firewalld sudo systemctl enable firewalld To stop and disable it: sudo systemctl stop firewalld sudo systemctl disable firewalld 2. Check the firewall status. The output should say either running or not running . sudo firewall-cmd --state 3. To view the status of the FirewallD daemon: sudo systemctl status firewalld Example output: firewalld.service - firewalld - dynamic firewall daemon Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/firewalld.service; enabled; vend Active: active (running) since Thu 2019-08-08 15:11:24 IST; 23h ago Docs: man:firewalld(1) Main PID: 2577 (firewalld) CGroup: /system.slice/firewalld.service └─2577 /usr/bin/python -Es /usr/sbin/firewalld --nofork --nopid 4.
