    Hi!

    What happened with test mode in fwbuilder 5?
    In previous versions during installation of firewall polices there were two options available:
    "Test run: run the script in the firewall but do not store it permanently" and "Schedule reboot in …. min"

    Now this very useful option has gone!

    Why? Could we get it back?

    Test mode worked very inconsistently across platforms and was unreliable, so we removed it while we work on a more robust solution.

    What firewall platforms are you managing with fwbuilder?

    Hi!

    I'm sorry for long lack of answer (to many jobs to do :-)

    I'm using fwbuilder mainly to manage iptables on various Linux flavours and also on few routers with dd-wrt firmware (after all it is also iptables).
