SunScreen 3.1 Administration Guide

Command-Line Session

Unlike many of the other ssadm sub-commands, the configuration editor allows editing only one policy at a time. When you are in an editing session, others are unable to edit, and can only read the policy.

You invoke the configuration editor with the edit command, which is a sub-command of ssadm, and the name of your policy, such as Initial. Once it is running, the prompt becomes: edit>.

  1. For a locally administered Screen, type:

    # ssadm edit policy_name

  2. For a remotely administered Screen, type:

    # ssadm -r Screen_name edit policy_name
