How to deny access to unsecure ports in the network services or firewall settings?

Hi again,
I am migrating from opensuse to nethserver. Actual I am working on migrating my firewall settings.
I have seen that you can do some settings at the network services tab. But there you can only allow or deny dovecot with all ports(110,143,4190,993,995). Same thing with HTTP. I want to allow only secure ports.

I tested with creating a firewall rule with deny on port 110, but that didn’t work. I think because the network settings override my own firewall rule.

Is there any way to implement this?

By the way if you create a zone with the same subnet as your eth0 or eth1 the nethserver isn’t reachable anymore until you stop the shorewall service. Perhaps you can check this and give out a error message if somebody would like to do that.

Hope you can help me.

Thank you!

AFAIK Network Services panel is the way

As written above, you can only allow the whole portrange. I want to allow/deny single ports.
For the meantime I have create a custom-template but this is not the way it should be.


To disable 110 port you need :

[root@nethserver ]# config setprop dovecot TCPPorts 143,4190,993,995
[root@nethserver ]# signal-event nethserver-mail-common-update

[root@nethserver dovecot]# netstat -plane | grep 110
tcp        0      0       *                   LISTEN      0          2585346    2139/dovecot
tcp        0      0 :::110                      :::*                        LISTEN      0          2585347    2139/dovecot

To disable 80 port you need:

config setprop httpd TCPPorts 443
signal-event nethserver-httpd-update

Finnaly run :

signal-event nethserver-firewall-base-update

Great, thank you!!!
This is exactly what I have searched for.
