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.

       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 Shorewall6 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/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.
