Iptables and ebtables


#1

I have a need for a cookbook to manage iptables and ebtables. I’ve been using simple_iptables for starters, but the maintainer is no longer answering and it doesn’t support ebtables. The Opscode Firewall cookbook so far only supports UFW.

Are there plans to add support for iptables/ebtables to the Opscode Firewall cookbook, and if so when? If not I may be able to work on it. Also open to other options.

You mean Ubuntu firewall?

Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t UFW just nicer way to manage iptables?
At least I got that kind of an impression by reading Ubuntu docs
considering UFW

By UFW I mean Ubuntu Firewall. I need the full power of iptables and ebtables for what I’m doing, unfortunately UFW abstracts too much.

We don’t have current plans for ebtables but integration support to provide that would be great contribution.

There’s iptables cookbook too - a bit clunky, but gets the job done for
me most of the time. If I need to use other table than filter', then I have to resort to ugly hacks. Don't even ask what has to happen if more than one cookbook needs to update thenat’ table.

If/when I have some meaningful amount of free cycles, I’ve planned to work
on something nicer to use - data-driven, with LWRPs, not requiring having a
freaking template for every rule, and supporting other tables. Michael -
if you happen to start working on it, let me know, we may join our forces.
