View Full Version : Firewall Config was better in ISPConfig2

One of the things I really like about ISPConfig2 is the ease of managing the firewall. For example, I normally keep FTP port-21 closed and open it only when I want to use it. I can quickly see which ports are active. Each port has a Name, Port, Type and status. It's easy to add, change or delete firewall rules as needed. I don't have to remember that port 1241 is for Nessus or port 4949 is for Munin. It is all spelled out on one page.

With ISPConfig3 there appears to be one master firewall record for each server. Each record just has a list of port numbers for TCP and UDP ports. This is harder to deal with.

I suppose I could create multiple firewall records and just activate the one I want to use and deactivate all the others. The problem is there is no option to name custom firewall records.

I would really like to see something more like the ISPConfig2 method in ISPConfig3.
