NAME

       firehol-group - group commands with common options

SYNOPSIS

       group with rule-params

       group end

DESCRIPTION

       The group command allows you to group together multiple client and server commands.

       Grouping  commands with common options (see firehol-params(5)) allows the option values to
       be checked only once in the generated firewall rather than once  per  service,  making  it
       more efficient.

       Nested groups may be used.

EXAMPLES

       This:

              interface any world
                client all accept
                server http accept

                # Provide these services to trusted hosts only
                server "ssh telnet" accept src "192.0.2.1 192.0.2.2"

       can be replaced to produce a more efficient firewall by this:

              interface any world
                client all accept
                server http accept

                # Provide these services to trusted hosts only
                group with src "192.0.2.1 192.0.2.2"
                  server telnet accept
                  server ssh accept
                group end
