OR

To forward a port to a different server

  1. Activate masquerade in the desired zone.

2. Add forward rule. This example, forwards traffic from local port 80 to port 8080 on a remote server located at the IP address: 123.456.78.9.

Rich Rules in Firewalld


Rich rules syntax is extensive but fully documented in the firewalld.richlanguage(5) man page (or see man firewalld.richlanguage in your terminal). Use --add-rich-rule--list-rich-rules and --remove-rich-rule with firewall-cmd command to manage them.

Examples :

Allow all IPv4 traffic from host 192.168.0.14 :

Deny IPv4 traffic over TCP from host 192.168.1.10 to port 22 :

Allow IPv4 traffic over TCP from host 10.1.0.3 to port 80, and forward it locally to port 8080 :

Forward all IPv4 traffic on port 80 to port 8080 on host 172.31.4.2 (masquerade should be active on the zone).

To list your current Rich Rules

iptables Direct Interface


For the most advanced usage, or for iptables experts, FirewallD provides a direct interface that allows you to pass raw iptables commands to it. Direct Interface rules are not persistent unless the --permanent is used.
