I whitelisted an IP address in csf (csf.allow). Why is it being blocked by lfd?

Support Portal  »  Knowledgebase  »  Viewing Article

csf and lfd use different files for whitelisting. csf.allow is used by csf to construct the iptables rules. csf.ignore is used by lfd to ignore specified IP addresses if they were to be banned for triggering watched events.

So, you need to list an IP address in both files if you never want it blocked for any reason.

If you always want to whitelist IP's in csf.allow in lfd, then you can enable the option IGNORE_ALLOW in csf.conf and then restart lfd:

service lfd restart
