How can I give my kids 1 extra hour?

  • The situation:
    My kids keep staying up late using the internet.  So I bought pfSense to turn off their internet via scheules, rules and aliases.  This works well.

    The Problem:
    Sometimes they need an extra hour to finish homework. After the homework is done I must remember to log back in and turn on the rule again.  But sometimes I forget.

    I found some nice cheat sheets like, and I'm able to list the rules by listing the commands and grepping for night.

    pfctl -vvsa | grep night

    But I can't seem to find a way to ssh in and execute a command which will disable and enable a firewall rule after an hour.

    How can I set a rule to be temporarily disabled?
