Re: how to correctly add firewal rules

cool, thanks for the clarification.

Just curious… because it says at the top of /etc/nftables.conf:

#
# This file is managed by iRedMail Team "support@iredmail.org" with Ansible,
# please do __NOT__ modify it manually.

How do you keep changes to the file intact?
