Description of Firewall Policy


#1

Hi There

In juniper, we have “Annote” command which we can use to add description against various parameters like Firewall Filters/Policies, Routing Protocols etc. Here is the link for reference.

Do we have any similar command in Vyatta where we can add description against configuration parameters ?

Thanks

I don’t think there is anything in vyos that does that. I can see how something like that could be helpful in some training examples, but the VyOS allows you to describe what you are doing by providing a description of nodes, rules, policies, interfaces, etc. For example, ‘set firewall name BLOCK description “This firewall will block everything and make my router a fortress!”’ Then I can add rules and give them descriptions, e.g., ‘set firewall name BLOCK rule 10 description “This will block all http access to my router”’.
