Enable/Disable firewall rules from external source
I need some help with an idea I´ve got.
I want to run a script on my computer. When the script finds what it´s looking for, I want the script to automatically trigger a rule to activate in pfsense.
Any idea how to do this?
Is it possible to trigger an SSH script to enable and disable this rule?
Thanks in advance.
Based on the info you've provided so far, I'd say this is a pretty awful idea. However, perhaps if you clarified what you're trying to acheive…?
I'm interested in similar functionality. I have a floating rule to deny kids' devices. I would like the wife to have a way of enabling/disabling rule without logging into dashboard. I am rolling out a zwave homeauto system that will allow family to monitor door locks, etc from tablets around the house. Would love to have a button execute a script to enable the deny rule.
