    Sorry if this sounds like a noob question, but why are two firewalls on a server going to conflict with one another? You can run two firewalls on a PC without problems: the default Windows Firewall together with the firewall provided by any internet security suite (BitDefender, F-Secure, ZoneAlarm, Avira etc.)...
    Just because they aren't displaying messages left right and centre doesn't mean that they are working without issue. This is an extremely bad idea - I can't emphasise that enough.

    Unfortunately, people don't usually see the conflicts happening until it is too late and someone has taken advantage of your system being vulnerable. There is no benefit to two software firewalls so I'm unsure as to the reason why you would want to have two working together? .
