Should firewalld be enabled or disabled in conjuction with ENS FW for Linux?

Basically what the subject title says. Just trying to figure out if firewalld should be left running or if it should be disabled when ENS for Linux FW is on. Not sure if firewalld is the service iptables runs on or not.

Hi @JDCast11,

Thank you for your post.

I am not a Linux expert and hence this may need to be posted under Non Windows Forum to get the experts attention.

However, I believe Firewalld is the daemon that takes care of iptables and if that's the case, I believe it is very much a requirement for ENS Linux FW.

Working with IP tables is explained in the below FAQ document:
