firehol-group - group commands with common options

firehol-group(5) 3.1.5 firehol-group(5)

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
