       firewalld - Dynamic Firewall Manager

       firewalld [OPTIONS...]

       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.

       These are the command line options of firewalld:

       -h, --help
	   Prints a short help text and exists.

	   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.

	   Print garbage collector leak information. The collector runs every 10 seconds and if
	   there are leaks, it prints information about the leaks.

	   Turn off daemon forking. Force firewalld to run as a foreground process instead of as
	   a daemon in the background.

	   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.

       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

       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.

       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)

       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

   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.

       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).

       Currently only SIGHUP is supported.

       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.
