Firewalld: An Easier Way to Manage Linux Firewalls
Firewalld is a firewall management system for Linux that allows admins to create custom rules to control network traffic. It's designed to be much more user-friendly than the older style of managing firewalls, which requires editing configuration files (and risking breaking something). Firewalld also supports IPv6 features like NAT and port forwarding to act as a proxy or gateway between two networks.
