The traceroute problem in CSF servers
« on: June 06, 2016, 07:44:04 PM »
Hello,

In the hosting industry the traceroute   tool is a very common tool using for servers simple network status. If we install CSF in any server, the traceroute  fails. So admins will think there will be some problems. As from a security view it is good to block such packets. Even though it will be good to enable the  UDP_IN port rang  33434:33523 as open in default CSF configuration.

Open csf configuration file and search for UDP_IN

Quote
# To allow incoming traceroute add 33434:33523 to this
   UDP_IN = "20,21,53,953,33434:33523"

After that restart the csf firewall on server.
Quote
# csf -r

Traceroute will work fine now  :)
