WARNING: RESTRICT_SYSLOG is disabled. See SECURITY WARNING in Firewall Configuration in WHM

When looking at “ConfigServer Security & Firewall” in WHM it gives this error at the top in a yellow box WARNING: RESTRICT_SYSLOG is disabled. See SECURITY WARNING in Firewall Configuration

I resolved this by:

  • Setting RESTRICT_SYSLOG to 3 in the drop down box

This is a description of each number in the drop down box:

# 0 = Allow those options listed above to be used and configured
# 1 = Disable all the options listed above and prevent them from being used
# 2 = Disable only alerts about this feature and do nothing else
# 3 = Restrict syslog/rsyslog access to RESTRICT_SYSLOG_GROUP
