    I see a lot of people have mentioned APF when wanting to firewall their cPanel box. Is there any danger in using the standard /etc/sysconfig/iptables when configuring the firewall on RHEL4? I noticed the bandmin puts in a lot of rules for monitoring bandwidth - how does bandmin interact with firewalling packages and/or straight iptables rules?

    APF uses IPTABLES. APF sets up rules and adds them to IPTABLES when the service is started, and flushes IPTABLES when the service is stopped. I haven't seen any problems with it and you should be able to set IPTABLES rules manually without issues.

    We would prefer to use straight iptables rules generated by filtergen... can anyone tell me how and when bandmin inserts its rules?
