    CSF vs APF

    welcome guys

    am using CSF and LFD but i got some problems
    like blocking for anything !!
    some time when my netconnexion become slow i click on the link many time to be opened ! so csf think thats a port scan issue so it block me !!
    thats normal to me i can change my ip , but my clients some time they couldnt to change their ip so they thing that the server is Offline

    this problem i dont get it when i use APF

    whats the best APF or CSF

    Try putting low settings? I like CSF. It has an easy interface that can be integrated with whm. Also I had it installed for a few days now, so far so good.

    I am converting all of my servers from APF to CSF! Easier to use and everything seems to be under one umbrella!

    ok.... you can adjust the trigger time, this way people doesn't affect so much.

    Not that I know of, he doesn't update it too often anymore but it really doesn't need to be. It isn't APF that would cause someone to hack into your server, it would be a vulnerability with iptables, so as long as you keep iptables up to date, APF or CSF should work fine.

    I personally like APF and have always used it along with BFD with never any problems.

    Remember, APF and CSF both aren't firewalls, they are just the utilities to control iptables, the actual firewall.

    I have been using APF/BFD for years but have recently made the tranition to CSF/LFD, at least on cPanel boxes. CSF is great just for the Interface alone, since it allows clients to easily make changes to their allow/deny lists without touching SSH.

    Thanks Guys
    finnaly my vote go with CSF

    i think iptable can be the best with some of modifaction it can run as a firewall and Brute force detection ! ( is that possible ? )

    Thanks

    Really? I think it's safe to say CSF has had more vulnerablities than "iptables" ever has.
