With the latest tumbleweed snapshot (20201209) I see that the default backend for firewalld is now set as nftables.
On my system I use iptables backend and I added some rules for vlan managing and a ppp internet connection.
In firewalld I see that my rules rules are present in the tab direct config and subtabs rules and passtrough.
These rules are saved in/etc/firewalld/direct.xml
Should I migrate to nftables?
If yes should it be automatically done by changing the backend or do I need to translate the rules?
I see that I can translate iptables to nftables via iptables-translate.
The example given in the man is
root@machine:~# iptables-save > save.txt root@machine:~# iptables-restore-translate -f save.txt root@machine:~# iptables-restore-translate -f save.txt > ruleset.nft root@machine:~# nft -f ruleset.nft
but the first command save all firewalld settings + the specific rules that I added.
Is this needed or can I just change the backend from itptables to nftables and add my rules translated?
Many thanks in advance
