firewalld provides a dynamically managed firewall with support for network/firewall zones to define the trust level of network connections or interfaces. It has support for IPv4, IPv6 firewall settings and for ethernet bridges and has a separation of runtime and permanent configuration options. It also supports an interface for services or applications to add firewall rules directly.


  • Can handle IPv4, IPv6 and bridges "under one roof"
  • Dynamic changing of rules via DBUS calls with policykit authentication without having to reload the whole firewall
  • Fully integrated with NetworkManager
  • Graphical cnfiguration utility: firewall-config
  • commandline configuration tool: firewall-cmd
