Physdev Support

Reported by: dreamind@… Owned by: Victor Julien
Priority: minor Milestone: undecided
Component: suite Version:
Keywords: physdev Cc:



I'm looking for physdev support (as in iptables) in vuurmuur. Is there a chance that this will get implemented in vuurmuur?

In iptables physdev is done via -m physdev and --physdev-in or/and --physdev-out. This is important to me, because I'm planning to use vuurmuur for a bridged firewall.

For example a iptables call could look like: iptables -A FORWARD -i br0 -o br0 -m physdev --physdev-in eth0 --physdev-out eth1 -j ACCEPT

(added with services and or ip's as you might like)

For documentation, see the manpage of iptables, the section about physdev.

This is something I'd like to support one day, but I don't think it will be done anytime soon unless someone other than me decides to implement this.

I think it may be interesting to describe all parts of Vuurmuur that would need to be changed to properly support bridge setups. Since I've never used Vuurmuur on a bridge I don't really have a good view on how the whole concept of Vuurmuur relates to it.
