firewallctl — firewalld command line client

Synopsis

firewallctl [Options...]

Description

firewallctl is an alternate command line client of the firewalld daemon. It provides interface to manage runtime and permanent configuration.

The runtime configuration in firewalld is separated from the permanent configuration. This means that things can get changed in the runtime or permanent configuration.

Options

For sequence options, this are the options that can be specified multiple times, the exit code is 0 if there is at least one item that succeded. The ALREADY_ENABLED (11), NOT_ENABLED (12) and also ZONE_ALREADY_SET (16) errors are treated as succeeded. If there are issues while parsing the items, then these are treated as warnings and will not change the result as long as there is a succeeded one. Without any succeeded item, the exit code will depend on the error codes. If there is exactly one error code, then this is used. If there are more than one then UNKNOWN_ERROR (254) will be used.

The following options are supported:

General Options

-h, --help

Prints a short help text and exits.

-v, --verbose

Be more verbose while printing.

-q, --quiet

Do not print status messages.

Version Option

version

Print the version string of firewalld. This option is not combinable with other options.

State Option

state

Check whether the firewalld daemon is active (i.e. running). Returns an exit code 0 if it is active, NOT_RUNNING otherwise (see the section called “Exit Codes”). This will also print the state to STDOUT.

Reload Options

reload [ -c | --complete ]

Reload firewall rules and keep state information. Current permanent configuration will become new runtime configuration, i.e. all runtime only changes done until reload are lost with reload if they have not been also in permanent configuration.

With the -c | --complete option, reload firewall completely, even netfilter kernel modules. This will most likely terminate active connections, because state information is lost. This option should only be used in case of severe firewall problems. For example if there are state information problems that no connection can be established with correct firewall rules.

Runtime To Permanent Option

runtime-to-permanent

Save active runtime configuration and overwrite permanent configuration with it.

The way this is supposed to work is that when configuring firewalld you do runtime changes only and once you're happy with the configuration and you tested that it works the way you want, you save the configuration to disk.

List Options

list zones [ -a | --active | -p | --permanent ]

Print predefined zones as a space separated list.

Zone Elements

A zone element can be one of:

interface interface

An interface name is a string up to 16 characters long, that may not contain ' ', '/', '!' and '*'.

If the interface is under control of NetworkManager, it is at first connected to change the zone for the connection that is using the interface for new or changed interface bindings. If the setting in NetworkManager fails, the zone binding is created or changed in firewalld and the limitations below apply.

As a end user you don't need to create or change zone bindings of interfaces in most cases, because NetworkManager (or legacy network service) adds interfaces into zones automatically (according to ZONE= option from ifcfg-interface file) if NM_CONTROLLED=no is not set. You should do it only if there's no /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-interface file. If there is such file and you add interface to zone with this --add-interface option, make sure the zone is the same in both cases, otherwise the behaviour would be undefined. Please also have a look at the firewalld(1) man page in the Concepts section. For permanent association of interface with a zone, see also 'How to set or change a zone for a connection?' in firewalld.zones(5).

For the addion or change of interfaces that are not under control of NetworkManager: firewalld tries to change the ZONE setting in the ifcfg file, if an ifcfg file exists that is using the interface.

Only for the removal of interfaces that are not under control of NetworkManager: firewalld is not trying to change the ZONE setting in the ifcfg file. This is needed to make sure that an ifdown of the interface will not result in a reset of the zone setting to the default zone. Only the zone binding is then removed in firewalld then.

source { address[/mask] | MAC | ipset:ipset }

A source address or address range is either an IP address or a network IP address with a mask for IPv4 or IPv6 or a MAC address or also an ipset. For IPv4, the mask can be a network mask or a plain number. For IPv6 the mask is a plain number. The use of host names is not supported.

service service

A service is a firewalld provided or user created service. To get a list of the supported services, use firewallctl list services [ -p | --permanent ].

direct [ -p | --permanent ] { add | remove } rule { ipv4 | ipv6 | eb } table chain priority args

Add or remove a rule with the arguments args to chain chain in table table with priority priority.

The priority is used to order rules. Priority 0 means add rule on top of the chain, with a higher priority the rule will be added further down. Rules with the same priority are on the same level and the order of these rules is not fixed and may change. If you want to make sure that a rule will be added after another one, use a low priority for the first and a higher for the following.

direct [ -p | --permanent ] query rule { ipv4 | ipv6 | eb } table chain priority args

Return whether a rule with priority and the arguments args exists in chain chain in table table. Returns 0 if true, 1 otherwise. This option concerns only rules previously added with direct add rule.

direct [ -p | --permanent ] get all-rules

Pass a command through to the firewall. args can be all iptables, ip6tables and ebtables command line arguments. This command is untracked, which means that firewalld is not able to provide information about this command later on, also not a listing of the untracked passthoughs.

Lockdown Whitelist Options

Local applications or services are able to change the firewall configuration if they are running as root (example: libvirt) or are authenticated using PolicyKit. With this feature administrators can lock the firewall configuration so that only applications on lockdown whitelist are able to request firewall changes.

The lockdown access check limits D-Bus methods that are changing firewall rules. Query, list and get methods are not limited.

The lockdown feature is a very light version of user and application policies for firewalld and is turned off by default.

lockdown-whitelist [ -p | --permanent ] { add | remove } element..

Add an element or several elements of the same type to the lockdown whitelist.

For possible lockdown whitelist elements see further down.

With the -p or --permanent option, elements are added in the permanent environment.

lockdown-whitelist [ -p | --permanent ] query element..

Return whether the element or several elements of the same type are enabled in the lockdown whitelist.

For possible lockdown whitelist elements see further down.

With the -p or --permanent option, elements are added in the permanent environment.

lockdown-whitelist [ -p | --permanent ] list { commands | contexts | uids | users }

Return list of elements added for the lockdown whitelist.

With the -p or --permanent option, elements are added in the permanent environment.

Lockdown Whitelist Elements

The lockdown whitelist can contain commands, contexts, users and user ids.

If a command entry on the whitelist ends with an asterisk '*', then all command lines starting with the command will match. If the '*' is not there the absolute command inclusive arguments must match.

Commands for user root and others is not always the same. Example: As root /bin/firewall-cmd is used, as a normal user /usr/bin/firewall-cmd is be used on Fedora.

The context is the security (SELinux) context of a running application or service. To get the context of a running application use ps -e --context.

Warning: If the context is unconfined, then this will open access for more than the desired application.

The lockdown whitelist entries are checked in the following order:

1. context

2. uid

3. user

4. command

A lockdown whitelist element can be one of:

command 'string'

The command string is a complete command line including path and also attributes.

If a command entry ends with an asterisk '*', then all command lines starting with the command will match. If the '*' is not there the absolute command inclusive arguments must match.

Commands for user root and others is not always the same, the used path depends on the use of the PATH environment variable.

context string

The context is the security (SELinux) context of a running application or service.

To get the context of a running application use ps -e --context and search for the application that should be white-listed.

Warning: If the context of an application is unconfined, then this will open access for more than the desired application.

user string

The user with the name string will be white-listed.

uid integer

The user with the id userid will be white-listed.

Config Options

config set { default-zone zone | lockdown { on | off } | log-denied value | panic { on | off } }

Set a firewalld config option.

The possible config options are:

default-zone zone
Set the default zone for connections and interfaces where no zone has been selected. Setting the default zone changes the zone for the connections or interfaces, that are using the default zone.

lockdown
Enable or disable lockdown. Be careful - if firewall-cmd is not on lockdown whitelist when you enable lockdown you won't be able to disable it again with firewall-cmd, you would need to edit firewalld.conf.

log-denied
If enabled, logging rules are added right before reject and drop rules in the INPUT, FORWARD and OUTPUT chains for the default rules and also final reject and drop rules in zones for the configured link-layer packet type. The possible values are: all, unicast, broadcast, multicast and off. The default setting is off, which disables the logging.

panic
Enable or disable the panic mode. If enabled, all incoming and outgoing packets are dropped, active connections will expire. Enable this only if there are serious problems with your network environment. For example if the machine is getting hacked in.

After disabling panic mode established connections might work again, if panic mode was enabled for a short period of time.

config list

List firewalld config options like default-zone, lockdown, log-denied and panic flag.

config get { default-zone | lockdown | log-denied | panic }

Get a firewalld config option.

The possible config options are:

default-zone
Returns the default zone for connections and interfaces.

lockdown
Returns whether lockdown is enabled.

log-denied
Returns the log denied configuration.

panic
Returns 0 if panic mode is enabled, 1 otherwise.

Settings Options

settings list

List firewalld settings like BRIDGE, CleanupOnExit, IPSet, IPSetTypes, IPv4, IPv6, IPv6_rpfilter, IndividualCalls and MinimalMark.

settings get { BRIDGE | CleanupOnExit | IPSet | IPSetTypes | IPv4 | IPv6 | IPv6_rpfilter | IndividualCalls | MinimalMark }

Get a firewalld setting.

The supported settings are:

BRIDGE
Returns whether bridge support is available.

CleanupOnExit
Returns whether CleanupOnExit is enabled.

IPSet
Returns whether ipset support is available.

IPSetTypes
Returns the currently supported ipset types. This setting lists all ipset types that are supported to be used within firewalld. This means the ipset types need to be supported by kernel and the ipset command and firewalld at the same time.

IPv4
Returns whether ipv4 support is available.

IPv6
Returns whether IPv6 support is available.

IPv6_rpfilter
Returns whether IPv6 rpfilter is enabled.

The IPv6 rpfiler performs a reverse path filter test on a packet for IPv6. If a reply to the packet would be sent via the same interface that the packet arrived on, the packet will match and be accepted, otherwise dropped. The rp_filter for IPv4 is controlled using sysctl.

IndividualCalls
Returns the individual calls setting.

If disabled, combined -restore calls are not used, but individual calls. This increases the time that is needed to apply changes and to start the daemon, but is good for debugging.

MinimalMark
Returns the minimal mark setting.

Marks up to this minimum are free for use for example in the direct interface. If more free marks are needed, increase the minimum in the firewalld.conf file.

Exit Codes

On success 0 is returned. On failure the output is red colored and exit code is either 2 in case of wrong command-line option usage or one of the following error codes in other cases:

StringCode
ALREADY_ENABLED11
NOT_ENABLED12
COMMAND_FAILED13
NO_IPV6_NAT14
PANIC_MODE15
