System Firewall - "Firewall service is not running!"

I install new distro (FreePBX-10.13.66-6-x86_64-Full-1445789882.iso 25-Oct-2015 16:23 1.2G )
and notice that system firewall service is not running (I follow freepbx wiki). Any ideas what I do wrong or how to fix this error?

thank you very much

By default, firewall does not run. You have to enable that.

Fail2Ban is work and iptables is work (strat on boot). And I receive mails for banned ip, but on system overview I have message “Firewall Service not running!” . It is possible to be bug?

thank you James

Please refer this link for the starting the service:

After upgrade to the firewall module 13.04 now is OK
Tnx James


oki it’s probaly a newby question, but i’ve been searching for the last hours how to install the firewall module in my freepbx 13? i just dont see it in any module…

thanks in advance for the help

Just go to module admin → check online, and it’ll be there.

It’s called System Firewall, and it’s in the Connectivity section.

Thank you just find it :smile:

FreePBX Distro 10.13.66-6(updated from FreePBX Distro 6.12). Everything is working fine but Service Firewall is not.
