    What problems did you have installing it? If you gave us any error messages then someone here will surley be able to help a lot more.

    I would treat this as a high priority though. No firewall can lead to bad problems.

    I am currently running APF on my machine. If you take a look at the EV1 Forums How To's there is a tutorial on how to setup APF.

    hello ! May it help u

    1) Install:


    rpm -Uvh apf-current.rpm

    2) Edit:


    DEVM="0" - set to 0 only if you are sure that firewall works good

    (Common Cpanel Ports, please re-configure for your use)

    TCP_CPORTS=" 21,22,25,53,80,110,143,443,465,993,995,2082,2083,2086,2087,2095,2096,3306,7786" (in one line!)


    Many other options in which you can enable inside the config. Please take time to configure.

    3) Restart APF

    To Enable Pings:

    pico -w /etc/apf/icmp.rules


    # Uncomment to enable pings

    # $IPT -t filter -A INPUT -p icmp --icmp-type 8 -m limit --limit $ICMP_LIM/s -j ACCEPT

    Then restart APF
