Solaris 10 What's New

Solaris IP Filter

This feature is new in the Solaris Express 2/04 release.

Solaris IP Filter is a host-based firewall that is based on the open source IP Filter. Solaris IP Filter provides packet filtering and network address translation (NAT), based on a user-configurable policy. Packet filtering rules are configurable in either a stateful or stateless manner. All configuration and management of Solaris IP Filter is performed through a command-line interface.

For further information, see the ipfilter(5) man page. Also, refer to the ipf(1M), ipfs(1M), and ipfstat(1M) man pages. In addition, see the System Administration Guide: IP Services.
