Firewall macro compiler

Project description


fwmacro is a library for generating iptables/ip6tables rules and to generate input files for iptables-restore and ip6tables-restore.

The library comes with two scripts: fwmpp and fwmc

The fwmpp command processes the simplified rules to a set of ip[6]tables rules and fwmc compiles a set of ip[6]tables rules to a ip[6]tables-restore file.


Typical setup/usage will be:

  • Create files with default chain sets in /etc/fwmacro/chains[4|6]/

  • Create a file with simplified rules in /etc/fwmacro/fw.rules

  • Compile these with: fwmpp /etc/fwmacro/fw.rules

  • Build restore files with: fwmc

  • Install iptables rules with: iptables-restore /etc/fwmacro/ipv4.rules

  • Install ip6tables rules with: ip6tables-restore /etc/fwmacro/ipv6.rules
