Hi, I was wondering if someone could help with a problem im having with the CSF firewall on centos, Im trying to block some ports but allow only specific IP addresses to access these ports, so I edited the csf config
and removed the ports I didn't want access to, this worked and only the IP address I used to install CSF was allowed access to the ssh and port 80 other IP addresses are denied, I then tried to allow access from another IP address by enabling IGNORE_ALLOW = "0" in the csf config and adding that IP address to the csf.allow list, I then reloaded the CSF rules, that didn't work.
I then restarted CSF and again that didn't work the new IP address was still being blocked,so finally I added the IP address to csf.ignore and rebooted, but its still not working, I then removed the first IP address from the csf.allow list and restarted but access from the first IP address was not denied,
so I come to the conclusion that the csf.allow list isn't working for me, Im having this issue on both a dedicated server and a VPS running centos 6.2 and centos 6.4.
Iv been trying for a while with no luck so would appreciate any help on what Im doing wrong.
