Powerful firewall manager. It has a simple and easy to learn configuration that allows both simple and complex configurations. The configuration can be fully configured through an ncurses GUI, which allows secure remote administration through SSH or on the console. Vuurmuur supports traffic shaping, has powerful monitoring features, which allow the administrator to look at the logs, connections and bandwidth usage in realtime.


Install vuurmuur AUR from AUR. If you prefer development version install vuurmuur-develAUR.


Use the service unit vuurmuur.service, refer to systemd for instructions.

Note: Vuurmuur currently does not support journald logging. This is because it parses textual files like /var/log/iptables.log and journald uses its own binary format. You must use syslog-ng or similar to have textual logging.
