KISS Version: 2
DA Specific version: 1
Over the past few weeks i have mentioned a firewall specific for use with DirectAdmin. If you have looked at the recent posts in the DA server checklist, you will have realised the Kiss link was recently updated to v2.0
I have modified the firewall to provide a simpe but very effective method for basic security on your server, I advise all who run Directdmin on RedHat to use this, or another firewall, if you know IPTables then that would also be fine.
IF YOU CURRENTLY HAVE A FIREWALL INSTALLED EITHER REMOVE IT FIRSTLY OR DO NOT INSTALL THIS FIREWALL
Installation does not get any simpler:
The location below is no longer valid.
Try these locations:
The original one can be found here.
My modified version, modified to work with DirectAdmin and with Plesk PSA, and also with some optional changes (read the code) for ModernBill, can be found here.
# cd /usr/bin
# wget http://optimum-servers.com/downloads/DirectAdmin/kiss2-1.2.tar.gz
# tar -zxvf kiss2-1.2.tar.gz
# rm -f kiss2-1.2.tar.gz
To configure any settings use top section of the KISS file
# pico -w kiss
Run the following commands *anywhere*:
To start KISS
To stop KISS
To check current status
If you make any changes ensure you restart it for the chnages to take effect.
Once it is installed I suggest you double check websites, directadmin, mysql and also into SSH in another window to ensure that you are not locked out.
Once you are sure everything is ok, add the following line to the end of /etc/rc.d/rc.local
