fwbuilder(1)		       Firewall	Builder			  fwbuilder(1)

NAME
       fwbuilder - Multiplatform firewall configuration	tool

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/bin/fwbuilder [-ffile.fwb] [-d] [-h] [-ofile] [-Pobject_name] [-r]
       [-v]

DESCRIPTION
       fwbuilder is the	Graphic	User Interface	(GUI)  component  of  Firewall
       Builder.

       Firewall	Builder	consists of a GUI and set of policy compilers for var-
       ious firewall platforms.	It helps users maintain	a database of  objects
       and  allows  policy  editing using simple drag-and-drop operations. GUI
       generates firewall description in the form of XML file, which compilers
       then  interpret and generate platform-specific code. Several algorithms
       are provided for	automated network objects discovery and	bulk import of
       data.  The  GUI	and  policy compilers are completely independent, this
       provides	for a consistent abstract model	and the	same GUI for different
       firewall	platforms.

       Firewall	 Builder  supports  firewalls  based on	iptables (Linux	kernel
       2.4.x and 2.6.x,	see fwb_ipt(1)), ipfilter (variety  of	platforms  in-
       cluding	*BSD,  Solaris	and  others,  see fwb_ipf(1)), pf (OpenBSD and
       FreeBSD,	see fwb_pf(1)),	ipfw (FreeBSD and others), Cisco PIX (v6.x and
       7.x) and	Cisco IOS extended access lists.

OPTIONS
       -f FILE
	      Specify the name of the file to be loaded	when program starts.

       -r     When  this  command  line	option is given	in combination with -f
	      file, the	program	automatically opens RCS	head revision  of  the
	      file  if file is in RCS. If file is not in RCS, this option does
	      nothing and the file is opened as	usual.

       -d     Turns on debug mode. Note	that in	this mode the  program	gener-
	      ates  lots  of output on standard	error. This is used for	debug-
	      ging.

       -h     Prints brief help	message

       -o file
	      Specify the name of the file for the print  output,  see	option
	      "-P".

       -P object_name
	      Print  rules  and	 objects for the firewall object "object_name"
	      and immediately exit. The	program	does not go  into  interactive
	      mode.  Print  output  will  be placed in the file	specified with
	      "-o" option.  If file name is not	given with option "-o",	 print
	      output  is  stored in the	file "print.pdf" in the	current	direc-
	      tory.
