NAME

       ipfwadm-wrapper - IP firewall administration

SYNOPSIS

       ipfwadm-wrapper -A command parameters [options]
       ipfwadm-wrapper -I command parameters [options]
       ipfwadm-wrapper -O command parameters [options]
       ipfwadm-wrapper -F command parameters [options]
       ipfwadm-wrapper -M [ -l | -s ] [options]

DESCRIPTION

       Ipfwadm-wrapper  emulates  the  behaviour  of ipfwadm. You can use this
       wrapper to use your old  ipfwadm  firewall  rules  with  ipchains.  See
       ipfwadm(8) for more details.

       If  the  kernel  does  not support ipchains (eg. a 2.0 kernel), and the
       file /sbin/ipfwadm.real exists and  is  executable,  then  it  will  be
       executed  with  the  arguments  given  to ipfwadm-wrapper.  This allows
       simple dual-booting of 2.2 and 2.0 kernels with  the  same  firewalling
       scripts:  simply  move  ipfwadm to ipfwadm.real, and ipfwadm-wrapper to
       ipfwadm.

BUGS

       The script isn’t clever at parsing command line  arguments.   You  must
       use  separate  arguments,  rather than run them together.  For example,
       ‘ipfwadm -Mle’ becomes ‘ipfwadm-wrapper -M -l -e’.

       Fragment accounting rules  are  not  translated  correctly;  they  will
       account packets with source port 65535.

       Due to new kernel restrictions, you must be root even to list rules for
       2.2 kernels.

       If /usr is mounted from NFS, you will  not  be  able  to  use  ipfwadm-
       wrapper before /usr is mounted.
