RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for ipfwadm-wrapper (redhat section 8)

IPFWADM-WRAPPER(8)							       IPFWADM-WRAPPER(8)

NAME
       ipfwadm-wrapper - IP firewall administration

SYNOPSIS
       ipfwadm-wrapper -A command parameters [options]
       ipfwadm-wrapper -I command parameters [options]
       ipfwadm-wrapper -O command parameters [options]
       ipfwadm-wrapper -F command parameters [options]
       ipfwadm-wrapper -M [ -l | -s ] [options]

DESCRIPTION
       Ipfwadm-wrapper	emulates  the  behaviour of ipfwadm. You can use this wrapper to use your
       old ipfwadm firewall rules with ipchains. See ipfwadm(8) for more details.

       If  the	kernel	does  not  support  ipchains  (eg.  a	2.0   kernel),	 and   the   file
       /sbin/ipfwadm.real  exists  and is executable, then it will be executed with the arguments
       given to ipfwadm-wrapper.  This allows simple dual-booting of 2.2 and 2.0 kernels with the
       same  firewalling  scripts:  simply  move  ipfwadm to ipfwadm.real, and ipfwadm-wrapper to
       ipfwadm.

SEE ALSO
       ipfwadm(8), ipchains(8)

BUGS
       The script isn't clever at parsing command line arguments.  You must  use  separate  argu-
       ments,  rather than run them together.  For example, `ipfwadm -Mle' becomes `ipfwadm-wrap-
       per -M -l -e'.

       Fragment accounting rules are not translated correctly; they  will  account  packets  with
       source port 65535.

       Due to new kernel restrictions, you must be root even to list rules for 2.2 kernels.

       If  /usr  is  mounted from NFS, you will not be able to use ipfwadm-wrapper before /usr is
       mounted.
