  • I’ll be working from a Liquid Web Core Managed CentOS 7 server, and I’ll be logged in as root.

Zones enhance an administrator’s capability to define trusts and restrict network traffic. On installation and without any configuration, the default zone for firewalld is set to the public zone.

Note: When network interfaces added to firewalld they are assigned to the default zone.
