DESCRIPTION

       The shorewall6-lite utility is used to control the Shoreline Firewall 6
       (Shorewall6) Lite.

OPTIONS

       The trace and debug options are used for debugging. See
       http://www.shorewall.net/starting_and_stopping.htm#Trace.

       The nolock option prevents the command from attempting to acquire the
       Shorewall6 Lite lockfile. It is useful if you need to include
       shorewall6-lite commands in the started extension script.

       The options control the amount of output that the command produces.
       They consist of a sequence of the letters v and q. If the options are
       omitted, the amount of output is determined by the setting of the
       VERBOSITY parameter in shorewall6.conf[1](5). Each v adds one to the
       effective verbosity and each q subtracts one from the effective
       VERBOSITY. Anternately, v may be followed immediately with one of
       -1,0,1,2 to specify a specify VERBOSITY. There may be no white space
       between v and the VERBOSITY.

       The options may also include the letter t which causes all progress
       messages to be timestamped.

COMMANDS

       The available commands are listed below.

       allow
           Re-enables receipt of packets from hosts previously blacklisted by
           a drop, logdrop, reject, or logreject command.

       clear
           Clear will remove all rules and chains installed by Shorewall6
           Lite. The firewall is then wide open and unprotected. Existing
           connections are untouched. Clear is often used to see if the
           firewall is causing connection problems.

       drop
           Causes traffic from the listed addresses to be silently dropped.

       dump
           Produces a verbose report about the firewall configuration for the
           purpose of problem analysis.

           The -x option causes actual packet and byte counts to be displayed.
           Without that option, these counts are abbreviated. The -m option
           causes any MAC addresses included in Shorewall6 Lite log messages
           to be displayed.

       forget
           Deletes /var/lib/shorewall6-lite/filename and
           /var/lib/shorewall6-lite/save. If no filename is given then the
           file specified by RESTOREFILE in shorewall6-lite.conf[2](5) is
           assumed.

       help
           Displays a syntax summary.

       hits
           Generates several reports from Shorewall6 Lite log messages in the
           current log file.

       logdrop
           Causes traffic from the listed addresses to be logged then
           discarded.

       logwatch
           Monitors the log file specified by theLOGFILE option in
           shorewall6-lite.conf[2](5) and produces an audible alarm when new
           Shorewall6 Lite messages are logged. The -m option causes the MAC
           address of each packet source to be displayed if that information
           is available. The refresh-interval specifies the time in seconds
           between screen refreshes. You can enter a negative number by
           preceding the number with "--" (e.g., shorewall6-lite logwatch --
           -30). In this case, when a packet count changes, you will be
           prompted to hit any key to resume screen refreshes.

       logreject
           Causes traffic from the listed addresses to be logged then
           rejected.

       reset
           All the packet and byte counters in the firewall are reset.

       restart
           Restart is similar to shorewall6-lite stop followed by
           shorewall6-lite start. Existing connections are maintained.

           The -n option causes Shorewall6 to avoid updating the routing
           table(s).

           The -p option causes the connection tracking table to be flushed;
           the conntrack utility must be installed to use this option.

       restore
           Restore Shorewall6 Lite to a state saved using the shorewall6-lite
           save command. Existing connections are maintained. The filename
           names a restore file in /var/lib/shorewall6-lite created using
           shorewall6-lite save; if no filename is given then Shorewall6 Lite
           will be restored from the file specified by the RESTOREFILE option
           in shorewall6-lite.conf[2](5).

       save
           The dynamic blacklist is stored in /var/lib/shorewall6-lite/save.
           The state of the firewall is stored in
           /var/lib/shorewall6-lite/filename for use by the shorewall6-lite
           restore and shorewall6-lite -f start commands. If filename is not
           given then the state is saved in the file specified by the
           RESTOREFILE option in shorewall6-lite.conf[2](5).

       show
           The show command can have a number of different arguments:

           actions
               Produces a report about the available actions (built-in,
               standard and user-defined).

           capabilities
               Displays your kernel/iptables capabilities. The -f option
               causes the display to be formatted as a capabilities file for
               use with compile -e.

           [ [ chain ] chain ... ]
               The rules in each chain are displayed using the ip6tables -L
               chain -n -v command. If no chain is given, all of the chains in
               the filter table are displayed. The -x option is passed
               directly through to iptables and causes actual packet and byte
               counts to be displayed. Without this option, those counts are
               abbreviated. The -t option specifies the Netfilter table to
               display. The default is filter.

               If the t option and the chain keyword are both omitted and any
               of the listed chains do not exist, a usage message will be
               displayed.

           classifiers
               Displays information about the packet classifiers defined on
               the system as a result of traffic shaping configuration.

           config
               Dispays distribution-specific defaults.

           connections
               Displays the IPv6 connections currently being tracked by the
               firewall.

           mangle
               Displays the Netfilter mangle table using the command ip6tables
               -t mangle -L -n -v.The -x option is passed directly through to
               iptables and causes actual packet and byte counts to be
               displayed. Without this option, those counts are abbreviated.

           tc
               Displays information about queuing disciplines, classes and
               filters.

           zones
               Displays the current composition of the Shorewall6 Lite zones
               on the system.

       start
           Start shorewall6 Lite. Existing connections through shorewall6-lite
           managed interfaces are untouched. New connections will be allowed
           only if they are allowed by the firewall rules or policies. If -f
           is specified, the saved configuration specified by the RESTOREFILE
           option in shorewall6-lite.conf[2](5) will be restored if that saved
           configuration exists and has been modified more recently than the
           files in /etc/shorewall6.

           The -n option causes Shorewall6 to avoid updating the routing
           table(s).

           The -p option causes the connection tracking table to be flushed;
           the conntrack utility must be installed to use this option.

       stop
           Stops the firewall. All existing connections, except those listed
           in shorewall6-routestopped[3](5) or permitted by the
           ADMINISABSENTMINDED option in shorewall6.conf(5), are taken down.
           The only new traffic permitted through the firewall is from systems
           listed in shorewall6-routestopped[3](5) or by ADMINISABSENTMINDED.

       status
           Produces a short report about the state of the
           Shorewall6-configured firewall.

       version
           Displays Shorewall6-lite's version.
