These days, we hear about the need to have good computer security even from commercial tv and radio news no less. Basic security practices call for the of use of a host-based firewall on our computers. Many of us have been using iptables to provide the protection of host-based firewall. With the wide spread adoption of systemd, we are now faced with moving to firewalld. While firewalld is advertised as a wrapper for iptables, it is not a direct one to one mapping of syntax or configuration. This will be a basic introduction to firewalld. A general knowledge of the purpose and function of a host-based firewall will be helpful but is not required.
