NAME
apf - easy iptables based firewall system SYNOPSIS
apf DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the apf command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Advanced Policy Firewall (APF) is an iptables (netfilter) based firewall system designed around the essential needs of today's Internet deployed servers and the unique needs of custom deployed Linux installations. The configuration of APF is designed to be very informative and present the user with an easy to follow process, from top to bottom of the configuration file. The management of APF on a day-to-day basis is conducted from the command line with the 'apf' command, which includes detailed usage information and all the features one would expect from a current and forward thinking firewall solution. OPTIONS
apf follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. -s|--start load all firewall rules -r|--restart stop (flush) & reload firewall rules -l|--list list all firewall rules -t|--status output firewall status log -e|--refresh refresh & resolve dns names in trust rules -a <HOST CMT|--allow <HOST COMMENT> add host (IP/FQDN) to allow_hosts.rules and immediately load new rule into firewall -d <HOST CMT|--deny <HOST COMMENT> add host (IP/FQDN) to deny_hosts.rules and immediately load new rule into firewall -u <HOST>|--remove <HOST> remove host from [glob]*_hosts.rules and immediately remove rule from firewall -o|--ovars output all configuration options COPYRIGHT

NAME
firestarter - program to manage and observe firewalls SYNOPSIS
firestarter [options] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the firestarter command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in html format (see below). firestarter is a GNOME program that will help you in configuring and monitoring a GNU/Linux firewall using either ipchains or iptables. OPTIONS
This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. --generate-scripts Generate firewall scripts from current configuration. If firestarter is updated and you don't want to run the GUI, the scripts in /etc/firestarter are not up-to-date. So you have to run firestarter with this option to update the scripts. -h, --help Show summary of options. --lock Lock the firewall, blocking all traffic. -p, --stop Stop the firewall. -s, --start Start the firewall. --start-hidden Start firestarter with the GUI not visible. -v, --version Show version of program.
