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 any‐ thing other than the default return may cause strange results for your configura‐ tion. 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
