Firewall

Welcome to the documentation for managing firewall rules on your VPS through the control panel. This firewall feature enables you to control the traffic to and from your VPS effectively.

Introduction

The firewall is implemented within the VPS management space provided. It allows you to define rules that regulate incoming and outgoing traffic. Upon adding a rule, the firewall becomes active and blocks all requests by default. Removing rules will deactivate the firewall.

Requirements

  • a VPS
  • an OnetSolutions account

Instructions

When adding a new rule, you'll need to fill in the following details:
  • Priority: Assign a priority value between 10 and 100 to determine the rule's order of execution.
  • Direction: Specify whether the rule applies to incoming (INPUT) or outgoing (OUTPUT) traffic.
  • Action: Define the action to be taken on matching traffic, such as ACCEPT or DROP.
  • Protocol: Choose the protocol for the rule, e.g., TCP, UDP, or ICMP.
  • Source IP / Port: Define the source IP address and port range for the rule.
  • Destination IP / Port: Specify the destination IP address and port range for the rule.

Notes

  • Ensure that your rules are well-defined and prioritize security.
  • Regularly review and update your firewall rules to adapt to changing requirements.
  • Test new rules carefully to avoid unintended consequences on your VPS's connectivity.
