We offer a range of different Firewalling Levels, most of which can be adapted to your needs as required, the following firewalling levels are available for your Memset server(s):

No Firewalling

If you select this option, it is your responsibility to firewall your server. This option is only suitable for experts who know how to configure IP Tables or Windows firewall.

Deny All Firewalling

If you select the "Deny All" Firewalling, no inbound traffic is allowed, except for ICMP (Ping Requests) and Memset Monitoring and Support Services, all other traffic is denied.

Basic Firewalling

The basic firewall blocks all access to non standard ports. The accessible ports include those for HTTP, SSH, SMTP and POP3, and appropriate remote-access protocols such as Remote Desktop or cPanel/WHM.

For best security practices, the accessible ports depends on your operating system and control panel, as such we have a template for each of the offerings that are available. Click on the links below to see the details for your Operating System;

Please note you must be logged in to your Memset account to view the firewall rule group details.

The "Basic Firewalling" Level is non-configurable and only available on our Classic Generation VPS's. If you want to customise your firewall rules, you will need to upgrade to our Self-Managed or Memset-Managed options.

Self Managed Firewalling

Our Self-Managed Firewalling is fully configurable through the Memset Control Panel.

When you order a new server with Self-Managed or Memset-Managed firewall, your server will be automatically assigned to one of the following rule groups based on your Operating System and any control panel (e.g. cPanel) if you chose not to have the "Deny-All" firewalling. Click on the links below for more details of what is included as standard in the Firewall Group for your chosen Operating System.

Please note you must be logged in to your Memset account to view the firewall rule group details.

Memset Support can provide guidance and assistance on any changes you want to make, but as this is a "Self-Managed" firewall, they are unable to make the changes for you.

Memset Managed Firewalling

Memset-Managed firewalling gives you access to the same self-service tools as our Self-Managed firewalling.

In addition to this, we will make any changes under your instruction upon written request in a support ticket and provided assistance and guidance on your existing rules.
