Java API for managing firewalld.
- Clean programmatic access to firewalld.
- Supports fine-grained control over specific port and IP address combinations.
- Manages sets of services because firewalld is limited to only one <destination /> per service.
- Optimizes arbitrary sets of ports and IP addresses into a minimal set of service files.
- Small footprint, minimal dependencies - not part of a big monolithic package.
The AOServ Platform allows opening ports on a per-IP basis. firewalld service files are limited to a single <destination /> per service file. To selectively open ports on a per-IP basis, additional service files must be managed. This is tedious if done manually. We would rather firewalld support multiple <service /> tags with multiple <destination /> per service file, but this is not currently a feature.
Our server configuration process, AOServ Daemon, is written in the Java programming language.
We desire a clean interface to firewalld without having to operate with
firewall-cmd and other commands directly.
