    Default Service IFD is failed

    Hello cPanel users

    I have got a problem about IFD service. I used CSF (ConfigServer Security&Firewall) for my server . However, When I started csf, I see this error messages.
    Error: The VPS iptables rule limit (numiptent) is too low (291/300) - stopping firewall to prevent iptables blocking all connections, at line 365
    How can i solve this problem.

    Thanks
    Regards..

    LFD (not IFD) complains about low NUMIPTENT on your virtual server (number of filtered IPs) Can be increased by server administrator but is not recommended. Better remove the old filters (like old permanent blocks from /etc/csf/csf.deny)

    See numiptent

    You should increase it anyway as it can cause other problems too. But of course preventing the block list from getting too large is a good idea also.
