The firewall is managed from the dedicated server’s Firewall menu.
Use this menu to find, create and adjust your firewall rules.
If you have a number of rules, the rule placed highest will take precedence over the others.
To add a rule, choose:
the type of rule: ACCEPT, DROP (reject without informing the sender) or REJECT,
the direction: in our out,
the relevant IP/hosts,
The IP version.
Not putting anything in Hosts and Ports will enable the rule for all unless a higher rule states the opposite.
To allow your own IP address to never be blocked on any port you can create the following rules:
|IP version||IPv4, IPv6 or IPv4/IPv6 (depending on the stated IPs)|
Here you will see the IP addresses currently banned and the services that they are banned from.
If you end up banned from a service, check this menu and delete your IP if it is banned and add the necessary rule.
A ban lasts for 30 minutes by default and takes place after some ten connection failures.
