    This is more of an FYI than a support question. After following "The Perfect Server - CentOS 6.5 x86_64 (Apache2, MySQL, PHP, PureFTPD, Postfix, Dovecot and ISPConfig 3)" and applying a firewall record in ISPConfig, I can see the results with "iptables -L". However- after a reboot, Bastille does not start automatically. Hence the user is unknowingly left with the default firewall.

    Simply running "chkconfig --levels 235 bastille-firewall on" fixes it, but this was unexpected as it is never mentioned in the guide.

    I've also confirmed the same behavior using the virtual machine provided in the HowtoForge VMWare downloads page:
    "The Perfect Server - CentOS 6.5 x86_64 (Apache2, MySQL, PHP, PureFTPD, Postfix, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3) as virtual machine in ovf format, compatible with vmware and virtualbox."

    Thank you for reporting the issue. Bastille is activated by ispconfig at the time you add a new direall record in the ispconfig interface, so its not activated at install time. I added a bugreport in the bugtracker to check if something is broken there.
