IP Space Migration Continues

All Funtoo user containers in the 8.28 IP space will be moving into our new IP space (172.97) over the next few days. If you have DNS set up -- be sure to watch your container and update to the new IP! DNS will be updated after the move.

Funtoo user containers with IPs in the 72.18.x.x range will be gradually migrating to new IP addresses this week. If you have DNS entries for your containers, please be aware that your DNS will need to be updated.

Firewalld is from our fedora friends. Firewalld comes with a gui if the use flag is activated for it. Firewalld is a daemon that is on top of iptables, ebtables, & nftables. Firewalld inserts rules dynamically with out having to restart the kernel layer firewalls, and has interfaces to insert manual iptables, ip6tables, ebtables, and nftables rules. Package:Sshguard can be used along side firewalld to dynamically block attackers. Firewalld is very tightly integrated with Package:NetworkManager.


firewalld-0.2.x is very buggy under gentoo & funtoo, the init process refuses to stop among other things. it's really bad, pre alpha quality. go to nftables, or iptables now. or use the firewalld-0.3.x series.




If you would like an application to configure firewalld, set the gui use flag.

# emerge net-firewall/firewalld


# rc-update add consolekit
# rc-update add dbus
# rc-update add iptables
# rc-update add ip6tables
# rc-update add ebtables
# rc-update add nftables
# rc-update add firewalld
# rc


you may need to run rc-service {ip,eb,nf}tables save to enable these services to start


firewall-applet (gui systray icon)
firewall-config (gui configuration menus)
firewall-offline-cmd -h (many command line options
firewall-cmd -h (command line back end to firewall-config)
firewalld (command line firewall daemon control)


If the gui is merged in, to load it:

# firewall-applet
