firestarter - program to manage and observe firewalls
This manual page documents briefly the firestarter command. This
manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because
the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has
documentation in html format (see below).
firestarter is a GNOME program that will help you in configuring and
monitoring a GNU/Linux firewall using either ipchains or iptables.
This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
options starting with two dashes (‘-’). A summary of options is
Generate firewall scripts from current configuration. If
firestarter is updated and you don’t want to run the GUI, the
scripts in /etc/firestarter are not up-to-date. So you have to
run firestarter with this option to update the scripts.
Show summary of options.
--lock Lock the firewall, blocking all traffic.
Stop the firewall.
Start the firewall.
Start firestarter with the GUI not visible.
