PfPro combines Java and XML to provide a graphical inteface for creating and maintaining firewall configurations for OpenBSD's PF firewall system.Screenshot.
This code is still very alpha, but working. I still have a LOT of features to add, and would gladly accept any help. While writing this I discovered XML Binding, and as such the next major release will use that instead of nasty DOM tree mangling.
My goal is to produce a best-effort platform-independent firewall utility. By using XML, configurations can be verified efficiently (by check via DTD) and possibly translated to other firewalling systems (like IPChains, via XSLT). One day I would like PfPro to be able to handle configurations for various firewall platforms through a consistent interface.
