Basic Configuration

Understand the configuration from the puppet guide was not simple
Here my environment

  • manifests/site.pp (where there is my node)
  • modules/firewall/ (the stuff installed by the system)
  • modules/my_firewall/manifests/ (where there is my modules with my files) init.pp , pre.pp , post.pp


node puppetclientvirtual {
    include my_firewall     


class my_firewall {
  include my_firewall::post,my_firewall::pre
  resources { "firewall":
    purge => true
  Firewall {
    before  => Class['my_firewall::post'],
    require => Class['my_firewall::pre'],

  class { 'firewall': }

pre.pp and post.pp are the same of the guide

Advanced Configuration

Some rules to remember

  • in the first row you must put the number for the rule else you have an error, it is not a comment
firewall { '099 connection for mysql for':
  • the vector use works for port but not for ip
 source => ['', '', '']
port   => [80, 443],
  • to specify multisource but in one range there is
src_range => ''
  • the same is for destination
