I am new to Linux Dedicated server hosting and plesk panel 11 , i am looking for inbuilt firewall module . Is it comes with free in plesk 11 or i need to pay or plesk 11 doesn't support firewall?. I looked at the demo http://www.parallels.com/products/plesk/demos/, but i couldn't find any information about firewall in plesk 11.

  • For Windows it is there: Power User Mode demo -> Server tab -> Tools & Settings -> Tools & Resources -> IP Addresses -> Firewall (button). But it does not work on demo site (for obvious reasons). It uses Windows own firewall, no idea what it will use on Linux hosts.

Indeed, Plesk 11 has free built-in firewall module. You just may not have it installed - if so, go "Tools & Settings > Updates & Upgrades" menu and install missing components.

  • In the parallels plesk demo url updates & upgrades link is not working so i am unable to check, can you please confirm are you using plesk inbuilt firewall moduel in production linux server?
