"Couple of weeks ago, I started implementation of rpfcd, remote OpenBSD packet filter control daemon.This type of thing could prove to be very useful and an interesting protocol. Worth having a look at.
rpfcd goal is to provide a common framework for pf control and monitoring. Instead of running pfctl/tcpdump/pflog, writing ad-hoc parsing scripts, sending the results by mail, rpfcd provides the same and much more via a transparent server-client interface. Together with a decent CLI/GUI client, pf firewall monitoring becomes rather easy. This is especially interesting if you have several firewalls to control and monitor.
Since I don't know GUI programming, I'm looking for a brave soul that could implement a GUI client.
Anyways, more details, including source snapshots, are available at http://www.insecure.dk/rpfcd/.
Any input is appreciated. Thanks. "
