ippool - user interface to the IPFilter pools SYNOPSIS
ippool -a [-dnv] [-m <name>] [-o <role>] -i <ipaddr>[/<netmask>] ippool -A [-dnv] [-m <name>] [-o <role>] [-S <seed>] [-t <type>] ippool -f <file> [-dnuv] ippool -F [-dv] [-o <role>] [-t <type>] ippool -l [-dv] [-m <name>] [-t <type>] ippool -r [-dnv] [-m <name>] [-o <role>] -i <ipaddr>[/<netmask>] ippool -R [-dnv] [-m <name>] [-o <role>] [-t <type>] ippool -s [-dtv] [-M <core>] [-N <namelist>] DESCRIPTION
Ippool is used to manage information stored in the IP pools subsystem of IPFilter. Configuration file information may be parsed and loaded into the kernel, currently configured pools removed or changed as well as inspected. The command line options used are broken into two sections: the global options and the instance specific options. GLOBAL OPTIONS
-d Toggle debugging of processing the configuration file. -n This flag (no-change) prevents ippool from actually making any ioctl calls or doing anything which would alter the currently running kernel. -v Turn verbose mode on. COMMAND OPTIONS
-a Add a new data node to an existing pool in the kernel. -A Add a new (empty) pool to the kernel. -f <file> Read in IP pool configuration information from the file and load it into the kernel. -F Flush loaded pools from the kernel. -l Display a list of pools currently loaded into the kernel. -r Remove an existing data node from a pool in the kernel. -R Remove an existing pool from within the kernel. -s Display IP pool statistical information. OPTIONS
-i <ipaddr>[/<netmask>] Sets the IP address for the operation being undertaken with an all-one's mask or, optionally, a specific netmask given in either the dotted-quad notation or a single integer. -m <name> Sets the pool name for the current operation. -M <core> Specify an alternative path to /dev/kmem to retrieve statistical information from. -N <namelist> Specify an alternative path to lookup symbol name information from when retrieving statistical information. -o <role> Sets the role with which this pool is to be used. Currently only ipf, auth and count are accepted as arguments to this option. -S <seed> Sets the hashing seed to the number specified. Only for use with hash type pools. -t <type> Sets the type of pool being defined. Myst be one of tree, hash, group-map. -u When parsing a configuration file, rather than load new pool data into the kernel, unload it. FILES

ippool, ippool.conf - IP pool file format SYNOPSIS
ippool.conf DESCRIPTION
The format for files accepted by ippool(1M) is described by the following grammar: line ::= table | groupmap . table ::= "table" role tabletype . groupmap ::= "group-map" inout role number ipfgroup tabletype ::= ipftree | ipfhash . role ::= "role" "=" "ipf" . inout ::= "in" | "out" . ipftree ::= "type" "=" "tree" number "{" addrlist "}" . ipfhash ::= "type" "=" "hash" number hashopts "{" hashlist "}" . ipfgroup ::= setgroup hashopts "{" grouplist "}" | hashopts "{" setgrouplist "}" . setgroup ::= "group" "=" groupname . hashopts ::= size [ seed ] | seed . size ::= "size" "=" number . seed ::= "seed" "=" number . addrlist ::= range [ "," addrlist ] . grouplist ::= groupentry [ ";" grouplist ] | groupentry ";" | addrmask ";" | addrmask ";" [ grouplist ] . setgrouplist ::= groupentry ";" [ setgrouplist ] . groupentry ::= addrmask "," setgroup . range ::= addrmask | "!" addrmask . hashlist ::= hashentry ";" [ hashlist ] . hashentry ::= addrmask . addrmask ::= ipaddr | ipaddr "/" mask . mask ::= number | ipaddr . groupname ::= number | name . number ::= digit { digit } . ipaddr = host-num "." host-num "." host-num "." host-num . host-num = digit [ digit [ digit ] ] . digit ::= "0" | "1" | "2" | "3" | "4" | "5" | "6" | "7" | "8" | "9" . name ::= letter { letter | digit } . The IP pool configuration file is used for defining a single object that contains a reference to multiple IP address/netmask pairs. A pool can consist of a mixture of netmask sizes, from 0 to 32. In the current release, only IPv4 addressing is supported in IP pools. The IP pool configuration file provides for defining two different mechanisms for improving speed in matching IP addresses with rules. The first, table, defines a lookup table to provide a single reference in a filter rule to multiple targets. The second mechanism, group-map, provides a mechanism to target multiple groups from a single filter line. The group-map command can be used only with filter rules that use the call command to invoke either fr_srcgrpmap or fr_dstgrpmap, to use the source or destination address, respectively, for determining which filter group to jump to next for continuation of filter packet pro- cessing. Pool Types Two storage formats are provided: hash tables and tree structure. The hash table is intended for use with objects that all contain the same netmask or a few, different sized-netmasks of non-overlapping address space. The tree is designed for supporting exceptions to a covering mask, in addition to normal searching as you would do with a table. It is not possible to use the tree data storage type with group-map configuration entries. Pool Roles When a pool is defined in the configuration file, it must have an associated role. At present the only supported role is ipf. Future devel- opment might see further expansion of the use of roles by other sections of IPFilter code. EXAMPLES
The following examples show how the pool configuration file is used with the ipf configuration file to enhance the succinctness of the lat- ter file's entries. Example 1: Referencing Specific Pool The following example shows how a filter rule makes reference to a specific pool for matching of the source address. pass in from pool/100 to any The following pool configuration matches IP addresses and any in, except for those in table role = ipf type = tree number = 100 {,, ! }; Example 2: ipf Configuration Entry The following ipf.conf excerpt uses the fr_srcgrpmap/fr_dstgrpmap lookups to use the group-map facility to look up the next group to use for filter processing, providing the call filter rule is matched. call now fr_srcgrpmap/1010 in all call now fr_dstgrpmap/2010 out all pass in all group 1020 block in all group 1030 pass out all group 2020 block out all group 2040 An ippool configuration to work with the preceding ipf.conf segment might look like the following: group-map in role = ipf number = 1010 {, group = 1020;, group = 1030; }; group-map out role = ipf number = 2010 group = 2020 {;;, group = 2040; }; FILES
