Disable/enable firewall rule from shell (doing ssh) resp. PHP-script?

Hi, I've set up a pfSense router succesfully for a students lab.
But the teachers are interested in enabling/disabling internet access (80/443) for the students manually by clicking on some desktop icons.
So is there any way to disable/enable a firewall rule from shell (doing ssh) resp. PHP-script?
I know the rule id and in the the WebGUI the admin can disable/enable rules.
How is it done from CLI (teachers desktop icon is my problem, I know)?
Thanks for help.
There aren't any existing scripts to do that, but you could write one. It's just PHP.
Have a look at the "easy rule" code for some examples of manipulating rules like that. Though the code adds rules, not disables, but it does other operations that would be similar.
