Firewall Rules

ServerPilot enables an iptables firewall on your server. The firewall allows only the following incoming ports:

  • TCP port 22 (SSH)
  • TCP port 80 (HTTP)
  • TCP port 443 (HTTPS)

If you need to change any of these settings, be sure to read our article on customizing the firewall.

The ServerPilot firewall does not block IP addresses. However, you can sign up for our free HeatShield firewall for servers, and enable its brute force protection to automatically block IPs for failed SSH/SFTP login attempts.
