How to install firewalld on CentOS 6.7

Postby DEBCEN » 2016/03/17 14:47:27

Hi,
I want to remove ip-tables from my CentOS 6.7 installation and install firewalld in its place(like in centOS 7). How to do this as yum install firewalld is of no use.
Thanks

No, there is NO firewalld for CentOS 6.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!

firewalld uses iptables. Even if you could use firewalld on CentOS6 (you can't), you can't remove iptables and use firewalld.

Did you try system-config-firewall ?
