How to Enable and Refresh IP Filter

Before You Begin

You must become an administrator who is assigned the IP Filter Management rights profile. For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.3.

You have completed How to Create IP Filter Configuration Files.

  1. Enable IP Filter.

    To enable IP Filter initially, type the following command:

    # svcadm enable network/ipfilter
  2. After you modify IP Filter configuration files when the service is running, refresh the service.
    # svcadm refresh network/ipfilter

    Note -  The refresh command briefly disables the firewall. To retain the firewall, append rules or add a new configuration file. For procedures with examples, see Working With IP Filter Rule Sets.
