firewalld not listing any active zones?

giorgio79 asked:

When running

[root@host ~]# firewall-cmd --get-active-zones
[root@host ~]#
[root@host ~]# firewall-cmd --get-default-zone

I am not getting any active zones. How can I activate a zone?

My answer:

You activate a zone by binding a network interface or source IP address range(s) to it. Any firewall rules in the zone then apply to that network interface or IP address range(s).
