The firewall on box 1 is down. Generally it does not matter much because on a normal ispconfog server, you run only the services that shall be accessible anyway. So if the firewall is on or off does not make any difference.

Is there some setting in ISPConfig how to turn it back on? As I have read on this forum, modifying IPtables directly is not the preferred method as it might interfere with Bastille.
Restart bastille by running the bastille firewall init script.

Is it default configuration of ISPconfig to have all ports open over IPv6, or have I messed up something even on the Box2 (the newly installed one)?
Bastille does not suppport ipv6 (biút a firewall is normally not nescessary anyway like I pointed out above). With ispconfig 3.0.5, there is also support for ufw builtin which supports ipv4 and ipv6.

I have observed no problems with the Box1 for all the months the firewall was down. Is it a real threat to have all the ports open?
No.
