How do I setup SolarCloud VPS firewall rules?
Posted by Support on 19 August 2011 09:28 AM
With SolarCloud VPS On-Demand you can set firewall rules for the network interfaces of virtual machines. There are two types of firewall rules:|
ACCEPT â€“ defines the requests and types of packets which will be accepted by a firewall
DROP â€“ specifies the requests and packets which will be rejected by a firewall
Create a firewall rule
To configure a firewall rule:
1. Go to your SolarCloud On-Demand control panels' Virtual Machines menu.
2. Click the label of the machine to which you want to configure a firewall rule.
3. Click the Networking -> Firewall tab.
4. On the page that appears set the following:
The eth1 ACCEPT 188.8.131.52 22 TCP firewall rule means that the eth1 network interface will accept all the requests and packets addressed from a 184.108.40.206 IP using TCP protocol on a 22 port.
The eth2 DROP 220.127.116.11 22 UDP firewall rule means that the etj2 network interface will reject all the requests and packets running from a 18.104.22.168 IP using TCP protocol on a 22 port.
Because some rules can override each other, it is important to set the order in which they are processed. Use the up/down arrows next to a rule to set priority.
