TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

LAMP 12.0 Default IPTables ready for production?

Are the default values in the "Linux Firewall" section good for production use?

To enable the Firewall, do you only have to switch "Activate at Boot" to "Yes" then reboot the system? I've been trying to find more information on this here but have not been able to turn up much.

Thank you.

Should be...

AFAIK all running services have default ports open in the IPTables. So the rules should be a good starting point but you'll probably want to shut any that you don't use (and may as well kill the corresponding service(s) too).

TBH though I haven't tried the IPTables on v12 appliances.
