I started a little new project in which I take iptables or pf
tutorials and examples and try to reproduce rules found in them with
fwbuilder. I put them in separate Firewall Builder Cook Book chapters.
Right now I have few chapters about different ways to configure the
firewall for transparent proxy and well as some other things. It isn't
much but I intend to keep adding more examples as I find them.
I try to follow the same format in these chapters, where I provide a
link to the original document, then add screenshots to demonstrate how
this can be done in fwbuilder and then provide snapshots of generated
rules as well as a copy of the rules from the original document for
Some examples are rather trivial, while others are not. See the
chapter about iptables setup for IPP2P module ( http://www.fwbuilder.org/guides/firewall_builder_ipp2p_module.html
). Regardless of whether you need to do anything with P2P traffic
and therefore need the module or not, this chapter demonstrates
interesting mangle rules and how they can be done in fwbuilder. This
can be useful in other situations, not only for the IPP2P module.
Please send pointers to the examples you'd like me to add to the Cook
Book. Anything goes, but rules in your examples should be relatively
complex and not covered by existing chapters. If you have some
interesting example of your own, not found in some tutorial on the
web, please send those as well.
