Lire::Firewall(3) supplies a subroutine enabling TCP and UDP portnumber-to-name mapping


use Lire::Firewall qw/:firewall_number2names /;


The Lire::Firewall::firewall_number2names converts numbers for network services, as commonly found in firewall log files, to their descriptive names.

firewall_revolve FIXME TODO

It takes a firewall Lire dlf object as argument, and operates on its to_port, from_port and protocol properties.

TCP services, UDP services and ICMP types are supported.
