VPS and Firewalls

Postby martin_five » Mon May 23, 2011 6:25 pm

I read that firewalls do not always work well in a virtual environment; how can that be true? If it is, how do you protect a VPS server?

Some people report having problems running software firewalls on their virtual servers, but this is not a problem that everyone experiences. If you're new to managing a server then look for a reliable VPS provider who can offer you technical advice if needed. Manny VPS providers will provide you with information regarding software packages which are tested already on their system.

I agree with Fixed and I dont think its correct, when it comes to software firewalls. Software firewall can be installed on VPS and dedi. Personally i did not used firewall on my server and load was at 7 out of 12, when i enabled ConfigServer Security&Firewall from my cpanel, load fallen to 1.
