I am trying to use the puppetlabs-firewall module to define similar rules for IPv4 and IPv6. I tries to search on the net, but did not find any example on how to specify that I want all rules to be run with iptables and ip6tables. Is that possible ?

If not, can I duplicate the rules to have the IPv4 and IPv6 ? If yes, how can I acheive it ? I tries to use the provider parameter for firewall, but it throws me an error.

As an example, I would like to have this rule to be applied with both iptables ... (more)

This is a known issue as described in and

The first link contains a user-supplied defined type that you can try using as a workaround until the firewall providers are fixed.

Hope that helps!

Hello Greg, thanks for this answer, it perfectly fits my need. Next time I'll try to browse more accurately the bug tracker.

No worries, and when I said "known issue", I only meant known by the Puppet issue tracker. :) It was news to me, too! Glad it helped.
