FreePBX Firewall Option

Hello All,

I’m not really able to determine the difference in the firewall between using Trusted ( Exclude from Firewall ) and Local (Local Trusted Traffic).

In this scenario both may work, but I want to insure the difference if any.

This server is on the cloud, so there is no true local traffic.


If I understand correctly, they are strictly human differentiators.

I use Local for network traffic that is already protected by a Firewall - inside a local firewall.
I use Trusted for network traffic from places that I trust, like my ITSP.

Local is almost always “networks”, Trusted is almost always “hosts”.

In practical terms, I don’t think there are any differences.
