Q. Is the APF firewall supported? #
Ans. Yes, the APF firewall is 100% supported along with TAP/TUN. APF is a policy based iptables firewall system designed for ease of use and configuration. It employs a subset of features and is packaged in tar.gz format and RPM formats which make APF ideal for deployment in many server environments based on Linux. The configuration of APF is designed to be very informative and presents the user with an easy to follow process, from top to bottom of the configuration file. The management of APF on a day-to-day basis is conducted from the command line with the ‘apf’ command, which includes detailed usage information and all the features one would expect from a current and forward thinking firewall solution.
