Managing firewall rules
This feature is only available in ShellHub Cloud.
ShellHub provides flexible firewall for filtering SSH connections. It gives a fine-grained control over which SSH connections reach the devices.
Using Firewall Rules you can deny or allow SSH connections from specific IP address to a specific or a group of devices using a given username.
Each firewall rule has a priority number which is evaluated in ascending order (starting with the lowest). It's makes a lot easier to manage a large number of firewall rules.
You can configure Firewall Rules from the ShellHub UI (see image below).
A firewall rule is composed of the following parameters:
- Active: Indicates if the rule is active
- Priority: The rule's priority
- Action: Firewall action to perform (allow or deny)
- Source IP: Incoming connection's source IP address (regexp format)
- Username: Incoming connection's target username (regexp format)
- Hostname: Incoming connection's target device's hostname (regexp format)
The following parameters has support for regular expression:
Make sure to escape the periods in the value of these parameters.
