fwb_compile_all(1) Wrapper script that compiles policies for multiple firewall objects


fwb_compile_all -ffile.xml [-dwdir] [-av] [obj[ obj ...]]


fwb_compile_all is a wrapper script that compiles policies for several firewall objects in one batch job. This script takes a list of firewall object names on the command line (or '-a' command line option, see below) and calls policy compiler for each one. The script correctly determines which policy compiler is needed depending on the firewall platform of each object.


The script processes all firewall objects in the "/Firewalls" subtree.

-d wdir
Specify working directory. Compiler creates file with iptables script in this directory. If this parameter is missing, then iptables script will be placed in the current working directory.

Specify the name of the data file to be processed.

Script passes this option to the compiler, this makes it print diagnostic messages indicating its progress.
