NAME
firewall-applet - firewalld applet SYNOPSIS
firewall-applet [OPTIONS...] DESCRIPTION
firewall-applet is a tray applet for firewalld. OPTIONS
firewall-applet does not support any special options. The only options that can be used are the general options that Gtk uses for Gtk application initialization. For more information on these options, please have a look at the runtime documentation for Gtk. The following options are supported: -h, --help Prints a short help text and exists. GSETTINGS
firewall-applet has additional settings to adapt the look and feel. The used backend depends on the distribution and can be either dconf or GConf. The path to the settings is org.fedoraproject.FirewallApplet. You can use dconf-editor or gconf-editor to see and modify them. The following settings are supported: notifications The applet shows notifications if enabled. This setting can be enabled also in the applet with the "Enable Notifications" checkbox in the right mouse menu. This setting defaults to false. If notifications are shown for these actions if enabled: o Connection to firewalld established o Connection to firewalld lost o Firewall has been reloaded o Default zone has been changed o Panic mode has been enabled or disabled o Activation, deactivation or change of zones bound to interfaces o Activation, deactivation or change of zones bound to sources addresses show-inactive Show applet also if firewalld is not running. If firewalld has been stopped or is not running the applet will be hidden and not visible in the applet tray. Enable this setting to see the applet all the time for example to be sure that the firewall is active. This setting defaults to false. shields-up The shields-up zone name to be used if shields-up is enabled. This setting defaults to 'block'. shields-down The shields-down zone name to be used if shields-up has been deactivated again. This setting defaults to 'public'. blink If enabled, the applet icon blinks in these cases: o Connection to firewalld lost o Panic mode has been enabled or disabled This setting defaults to false. blink-count The number of blinks if blink is enabled. This setting defaults to 5. SEE ALSO

NAME
firewalld - Dynamic Firewall Manager SYNOPSIS
firewalld [OPTIONS...] DESCRIPTION
firewalld provides a dynamically managed firewall with support for network/firewall zones to define the trust level of network connections or interfaces. It has support for IPv4, IPv6 firewall settings and for ethernet bridges and has a separation of runtime and permanent configuration options. It also supports an interface for services or applications to add firewall rules directly. OPTIONS
These are the command line options of firewalld: -h, --help Prints a short help text and exists. --debug[=level] Set the debug level for firewalld to level. The range of the debug level is 1 (lowest level) to 10 (highest level). The debug output will be written to the firewalld log file /var/log/firewalld. --debug-gc Print garbage collector leak information. The collector runs every 10 seconds and if there are leaks, it prints information about the leaks. --nofork Turn off daemon forking. Force firewalld to run as a foreground process instead of as a daemon in the background. --nopid Disable writing pid file. By default the program will write a pid file. If the program is invoked with this option it will not check for an existing server process. CONCEPTS
firewalld has a D-BUS interface for firewall configuration of services and applications. It also has a command line client for the user. Services or applications already using D-BUS can request changes to the firewall with the D-BUS interface directly. For more information on the firewalld D-BUS interface, please have a look at firewalld.dbus(5). firewalld provides support for zones, predefined services and ICMP types and has a separation of runtime and permanent configuration options. Permanent configuration is loaded from XML files in /usr/lib/firewalld or /etc/firewalld (see the section called "DIRECTORIES"). If NetworkManager is not used, there are some limitations: firewalld will not get notified about network device renames. If firewalld gets started after the network is already up, the connections are not bound to a zone. Manually created interfaces are not bound to a zone. Please add them to a zone with firewall-cmd --zone=zone --add-interface=interface. Zones A network or firewall zone defines the trust level of the interface used for a connection. There are several pre-defined zones provided by firewalld. Zone configuration options and generic information about zones are described in firewalld.zone(5) Services A service can be a list of local ports and destinations and additionally also a list of firewall helper modules automatically loaded if a service is enabled. Service configuration options and generic information about services are described in firewalld.service(5). The use of predefined services makes it easier for the user to enable and disable access to a service. ICMP types The Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) is used to exchange information and also error messages in the Internet Protocol (IP). ICMP types can be used in firewalld to limit the exchange of these messages. For more information, please have a look at firewalld.icmptype(5). Runtime configuration Runtime configuration is the actual active configuration and is not permanent. After reload/restart of the service or a system reboot, runtime settings will be gone if they haven't been also in permanent configuration. Permanent configuration The permanent configuration is stored in config files and will be loaded and become new runtime configuration with every machine boot or service reload/restart. Direct interface The direct interface is mainly used by services or applications to add specific firewall rules. The rules are not permanent and need to get applied after receiving the start, restart or reload message from firewalld using D-BUS. DIRECTORIES
firewalld supports two configuration directories: Default/Fallback configuration in /usr/lib/firewalld This directory contains the default and fallback configuration provided by firewalld for icmptypes, services and zones. The files provided with the firewalld package should not get changed and the changes are gone with an update of the firewalld package. Additional icmptypes, services and zones can be provided with packages or by creating files. System configuration settings in /etc/firewalld The system or user configuration stored here is either created by the system administrator or by customization with the configuration interface of firewalld or by hand. The files will overload the default configuration files. To manually change settings of pre-defined icmptypes, zones or services, copy the file from the default configuration directory to the corresponding directory in the system configuration directory and change it accordingly. For more information on icmptypes, please have a look at the firewalld.icmptype(5) man page, for services at firewalld.service(5) and for zones at firewalld.zone(5). SIGNALS
Currently only SIGHUP is supported. SIGHUP Reloads the complete firewall configuration. You can also use firewall-cmd --reload. All runtime configuration settings will be restored. Permanent configuration will change according to options defined in the configuration files. SEE ALSO
