    The short answer is yes. It's a matter of preference. Whether you want firewall on your node or simply want to add a simply rule to block access to the world to the HN admin stuff.

    But it can be accomplished with some extra tweaking. Here are a few links you can read:

    It's safe to install CSF on OpenVZ VPS but if you are missing some IPTables, ask your provider to enable them for you.
