Just a hint:  unless you have dynamic behaviour in your Firehol
configuration, you don't actually *need* to run it every time you want
to apply a firewall.

You can easily use the standard iptables-{save,restore} scripts on a
Firehol generated firewall, and treat the Firehol script as a
"compiler", to apply (and then iptables-save) after you make a change to
the configuration file...


When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.
