Hi guys!  I'm looking for a solution that can help me automate firewall rules on multiple machines. I've searched high and low on the world wide web, but I can't seem to find a firewall manager that works on multiple machines. Any suggestions?

I honestly don't know of any program that does any iptables automation... If you already have a set of rules that you know you want to implement on your Linux machines you could always throw a bash script together that you run on each machine. It probably wouldn't be all to bad to create something like that.

See this post. The poster mentions it as being able to automate rules and policies on multiple machines.

 

Just as an FYI, I know nothing about the product linked by the poster. Figured it might be of interest to you since automation of rules was mentioned.

There is a Youtube video here which might give you an idea

 

 

 

 

... but it seems a little harder to find an independent review on the product.

 

Hope this helps, and likewise :welcome: to BC and to Linux and Unix
