ConfigServe Firewall, also known as CSF, is a firewall configuration script created to provide better security for your server while giving you an easy to use, advanced interface for managing your firewall settings.
CSF configures your server’s firewall to lock down public access to services and only allow certain connections, such as logging in to FTP, checking your email, or loading your websites. ConfigServe Firewall also comes with a service called Login Failure Daemon, or LFD. LFD watches your user activity for excessive login failures which are commonly seen during brute force attacks. If a large amount of login failures are seen coming from the same IP address, that IP will immediately be temporarily blocked from all services on your server. These IP blocks will automatically expire, however they can be removed manually through the ConfigServer interface in WebHost Manager.
In addition to removing IPs, CSF also allows you to manually whitelist or blacklist IPs in your firewall, as well as real time monitoring for automatic IP blocks in LFD. This is covered in Managing Your CSF Firewall.
We will install CFS on your server if not already present (replacing any other sw firewall installed) or if already installed properly configure the system.
