DESCRIPTION

       The shorewall-lite utility is used to control the Shoreline Firewall
       (Shorewall) 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
       Shorewall Lite lockfile. It is useful if you need to include
       shorewall-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 shorewall.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.

       add
           Adds a list of hosts or subnets to a dynamic zone usually used with
           VPN's.

           The interface argument names an interface defined in the
           shorewall-interfaces[2](5) file. A host-list is comma-separated
           list whose elements are a host or network address..if n .sp
               Caution
               The add command is not very robust. If there are errors in the
               host-list, you may see a large number of error messages yet a
               subsequent shorewall show zones command will indicate that all
               hosts were added. If this happens, replace add by delete and
               run the same command again. Then enter the correct command.

       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 Shorewall 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.

       delete
           The delete command reverses the effect of an earlier add command.

           The interface argument names an interface defined in the
           shorewall-interfaces[2](5) file. A host-list is comma-separated
           list whose elements are a host or network address.

       disable
           Added in Shorewall 4.4.26. Disables the optional provider
           associated with the specified interface or provider. Where more
           than one provider share a single network interface, a provider name
           must be given.

       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 Shorewall Lite log messages to
           be displayed.

       enable
           Added in Shorewall 4.4.26. Enables the optional provider associated
           with the specified interface or provider. Where more than one
           provider share a single network interface, a provider name must be
           given.

       forget
           Deletes /var/lib/shorewall-lite/filename and
           /var/lib/shorewall-lite/save. If no filename is given then the file
           specified by RESTOREFILE in shorewall-lite.conf[3](5) is assumed.

       help
           Displays a syntax summary.

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

       ipcalc
           Ipcalc displays the network address, broadcast address, network in
           CIDR notation and netmask corresponding to the input[s].

       iprange
           Iprange decomposes the specified range of IP addresses into the
           equivalent list of network/host addresses.

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

       logwatch
           Monitors the log file specified by theLOGFILE option in
           shorewall-lite.conf[3](5) and produces an audible alarm when new
           Shorewall 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., shorewall-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 shorewall-lite start but assumes that the
           firewall is already started. Existing connections are maintained.

           The -n option causes Shorewall 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 Shorewall Lite to a state saved using the shorewall-lite
           save command. Existing connections are maintained. The filename
           names a restore file in /var/lib/shorewall-lite created using
           shorewall-lite save; if no filename is given then Shorewall Lite
           will be restored from the file specified by the RESTOREFILE option
           in shorewall-lite.conf[3](5).

       save
           The dynamic blacklist is stored in /var/lib/shorewall-lite/save.
           The state of the firewall is stored in
           /var/lib/shorewall-lite/filename for use by the shorewall-lite
           restore and shorewall-lite -f start commands. If filename is not
           given then the state is saved in the file specified by the
           RESTOREFILE option in shorewall-lite.conf[3](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 iptables -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 10-080213-8397as a result of traffic shaping
               configuration.

           config
               Dispays distribution-specific defaults.

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

           mangle
               Displays the Netfilter mangle table using the command iptables
               -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.

           nat
               Displays the Netfilter nat table using the command iptables -t
               nat -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 Shorewall Lite zones on
               the system.

       start
           Start shorewall Lite. Existing connections through shorewall-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 shorewall-lite.conf[3](5) will be restored if that saved
           configuration exists and has been modified more recently than the
           files in /etc/shorewall.

           The -n option causes Shorewall 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 shorewall-routestopped[4](5) or permitted by the
           ADMINISABSENTMINDED option in shorewall.conf(5), are taken down.
           The only new traffic permitted through the firewall is from systems
           listed in shorewall-routestopped[4](5) or by ADMINISABSENTMINDED.

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

       version
           Displays Shorewall-lite's version.
