given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

puppetfinland/webserver — version 2.0.1 May 16th 2018


A generic webserver module for Puppet. Can be used to manage IPv4 and IPv6 firewall rules for webservers on Linux either directly, or from other modules such as [puppetfinland/apache2](] or [puppetfinland/nginx](].

Module usage

Allow access to ports 80 and 443 from any IPv4 or IPv6 address:

include ::webserver

Or more explicitly:

class { '::webserver':
  allow_address_ipv4 => 'anyv4',
  allow_address_ipv6 => 'anyv6',

Prevent IPv6 access but allow connections via IPv4 from an intranet:

class { '::webserver':
  allow_address_ipv4 => '',
  allow_address_ipv6 => '::1',

For details see init.pp.
