Today I just came to know that the Network tab in server management here in Ploi allow me to modify open ports but Its actually just modifying UFW firewall rules. I thought it was actually managing firewalls at my cloud provider like Vultr etc. So that the Port rules would be at Provider level. Not linux level.

So I request if you can allow managing the cloud provider's firewall groups/rules from within ploi. Or put a disclaimer in network tab about UFW.

If someone does not have this understanding, His UFW service may have been stopped due to some issue and then all ports would be exposed to internet by default. Because when we create any instance on cloud provider such as Vultr, they don't attach any firewall rules and all ports are open.

In short, currently port rules are handled at UFW level, If UFW is OFF, server becomes unsecure to all ports (specially redis and memcached ports, because they dont have any password on them).
