Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including firewall-my-systems with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

var firewallMySystems = require("firewall-my-systems")

firewall-my-systems v0.5.7

quick firewall rules builder for iptables, ipfw, and pf

firewall-my-system - instant firewall generator


npm install --global firewall-my-systems



firewall-my-systems can be run on the command line, or accessed over HTTP using the server. Here's the usage for the command:

firewall-my-system FIREWALL PORTSPEC
  FIREWALL = iptables | pf | ipfw
    t for TCP
    u for UDP

The firewalls generated are actually shell scripts that set up those firewalls, so feel free to pipe the output of this command into bash or something.

Example: generate an iptables firewall script opening TCP 22, 80, and UDP 5000

firewall-my-system iptables t22 t80 u5000


To start the server, run firewall-my-systems-server. You can specify the port by setting the PORT env variable: PORT=80 firewall-my-systems-server.

Accessing the server is almost identical to using the command line, except instead of spaces deliminating positional arguments, slashes are used instead. To run the example above, you would access, although you could use commas or any other non-number character to seperate portspecs.
