This module allows you to handle firewall rules using hiera declarations


Beginning with firewallmanager

Basically all you need to start using it is to include the firewall manager class

include 'firewallmanager'


Basically you will define the open ports you need on hiera files like this

Usual example

    'tcp': 'allow'
    'tcp': 'allow'
    'udp': 'allow'
    'tcp': 'allow'
    'tcp': 'allow'

A more advanced rule set is also supported

              port: '8080'
              protocol: 'tcp'
              action: 'accept'
              source: ''
              sourcemask: '24'
              destination: ''
              destinationmask: '0'
              port: '80'
              protocol: 'tcp'
              action: 'accept'
              source: ''
              sourcemask: '24'
              destination: ''
              destinationmask: '0'
