I have a Xen host running CentOS 7. The NICs in use for the wan are p1p1 and xenbr0. I installed CSF but am not achieving any level of protection for the host. I've tried setting the NIC to both p1p1 and xenbr0 one at a time.

With the NIC set to p1p1, the guest OSes are still available.however the host os is completely unreachable. Switching the NIC to xenbr0, nothing is blocked.

What am I missing? Suggestions?

I've tried every configuration I can think of and I'm just not getting anywhere. I'm guessing it has to do with the fact there's a bridge in there. Is there anyone using csf with a bridge?

Ok, I found this does work! This is the solution to ensure the host is protected separately from the guests.
