    [Debian] Shorewall installed, still ports open


    Hello

    I have installed shorewall onto my debian machine. I`m testing this because i want to use a VPS later but want to test all installations onto a VMWare machine.

    Now i have isntalled the shorewall onto the debian server. When using two different port scanners they find the smtp, ftp en pop3 port are still open after installing the firewall. When shuting down the firewall ssh is open also.

    The configuration files are below. Can someone tell me what i`m doing wrong?

    ---> Zones
    #ZONE TYPE OPTIONS IN OUT
    # OPTIONS OPTIONS
    fw firewall
    net ipv4

    ---> Policy
    ################################################## #############################
    #SOURCE DEST POLICY LOG LIMIT: CONNLIMIT:
    # LEVEL BURST MASK
    net all DROP info
    all all REJECT info

    ---> Interfaces
    ################################################## #############################
    #ZONE INTERFACE BROADCAST OPTIONS
    net eth0 detect tcpflags

    ---> Rules
    ################################################## ################################################## #########################$
    #ACTION SOURCE DEST PROTO DEST SOURCE ORIGINAL RATE USER/ MARK $
    # PORT PORT(S) DEST LIMIT GROUP
    #SECTION ESTABLISHED
    #SECTION RELATED
    SECTION NEW

    #SSH/ACCEPT net $FW

    Thanks.

    The problem was the virusscanner, it had services running near the default virusscan application. So disabling the virusscaner wasn`t enough. Turning off those services solved my problem.
