fwb_ipfw(1)		       Firewall	Builder			   fwb_ipfw(1)

NAME
       fwb_ipfw	- Policy compiler for ipfw

SYNOPSIS
       fwb_ipfw	 [-vVx]	 [-d  wdir]  [-o  output.fw] [-i] -f data_file.xml ob-
       ject_name

DESCRIPTION
       fwb_ipfw	is a firewall policy compiler component	 of  Firewall  Builder
       (see  fwbuilder(1)). This compiler generates code for ipfw - a firewall
       and traffic shaper in FreeBSD (see  ipfw(8)).  Compiler	reads  objects
       definitions  and	firewall description from the data file	specified with
       "-f" option and generates firewall configuration	and activation script.

       The generated file has a	name that starts with the name of the firewall
       object, with an extension ".fw".	It is a	shell script that flushes cur-
       rent policy, then loads new filter and nat rules.

       The data	file and the name of the firewall objects must be specified on
       the command line. Other command line parameters are optional.

OPTIONS
       -f FILE
	      Specify the name of the data file	to be processed.

       -o output.fw
	      Specify output file name

       -d wdir
	      Specify working directory.  Compiler creates firewall activation
	      script in	this directory.	 If this parameter  is	missing,  then
	      all files	will be	placed in the current working directory.

       -v     Be verbose: compiler prints diagnostic messages when it works.

       -V     Print version number and quit.

       -i     When  this  option  is present, the last argument	on the command
	      line is supposed to be firewall object ID	rather than its	name

       -x     Generate debugging information while working. This option	is in-
	      tended  for  debugging only and may produce lots of cryptic mes-
	      sages.

NOTES
       Support for ipfw	was added in version 1.0.10 of Firewall	Builder
