    Why not a preinstalled firewall with WHM ?

    Darkorb should know better of us all the ports which should be closed and opened . So why not a firewall on WHM ?

    It could be fantastic for example the possibility to tweak bettwen Bastille , Snort , and Kissmyfirewall , on Whm Tweak Section ..

    Why not ? Whm arrived at version 6 ... but still no firewall ?

    (is there a copyright problem to have firewalls preinstalled with whm ?)


    P.S. Could be fine to have also the latest chkrootkit version available on WHM .

    To many variations in Kernel's and what modules are loaded to make something like this a standard feature, imo. I have a server that will require a kernel recompile to get KISS my firewall to run due to no ip_conntrack_ftp support.

    I would much rather see development time spent on true chroot environments and real stability work, rather than adding more features at the moment.
