5.0 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

domkrm/ufw — version 1.1.4 Nov 1st 2019

UFW module for Puppet

Module for UFW (Uncomplicated Firewall) configuration.


To have Puppet install UFW, include the ufw class. This will install the UFW package, deny all incoming connections and enable UFW.

class { 'ufw': }

To allow certain connections:

ufw::allow { 'ssh':
  port => '22'

ufw::allow { 'ssh-from-trusted':
  port => '22'
  from => '',

ufw::allow { 'ssh-on-specific-interface':
  port      => '22',
  interface => 'eth1'

To disable all IPv6 connections, you have to initialize ufw class with following parameter:

class { 'ufw':
  ipv6 => false

To delete a rule, add ensure => 'absent' to the allow.

ufw::allow { 'ssh':
  ensure => 'absent',
  port   => '22'

Allow this to successfully run on all your machines at least once before removing it, in order to assure that the rule is gone.


Currently it is not possible to purge unmanaged rules.
