NAME

       firehol-policy - set default action for an interface or router

SYNOPSIS

       policy action

DESCRIPTION

       The policy subcommand defines the default policy for an interface or router.

       The action can be any of the actions listed in firehol-actions(5).

              Note

              Change  the  default policy of a router only if you understand clearly what will be
              matched by the router statement whose policy is being changed.

              It is common to define overlapping router  definitions.   Changing  the  policy  to
              anything  other  than  the  default  return  may  cause  strange  results  for your
              configuration.

              Warning

              Do not set a policy to accept unless you fully trust all hosts that can  reach  the
              interface.  FireHOL CANNOT be used to create valid "accept by default" firewalls.

EXAMPLE

              interface eth0 intranet src 192.0.2.0/24
                # I trust this interface absolutely
                policy accept
