Looking for the best way to control who can access my server.
installed firewalld, but I'm looking for an easy interface to manage it.
if not - how can I revert back to iptables ?
THanks

There is a `firewall-config` GUI for firewalld - but there is little to no documentation, threads or blogs about it. And no one seems to every talk about it. Why? How can I get it run it on my WHM/cPanel Centos 7 VPS? I installed `yum install firewall-config` via my WHM Root Terminal - its seemingly installed just fine, but I can't figure out how to launch it from WHM.

Upon further research the firewalld gui is a client gui (a server installed app) - not a web gui. Thus the only way to interact with the client gui is from the server itself which, for 99.99999999% of everyone, is not an option.
