Subject: [9front] [PITCH] ip/null
Date: Tue, 15 Nov 2022 20:42:52 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <fd9f3ff2-645c-9ff2-22d0-7e218dc88ed8@posixcafe.org> (raw)

As I play around more with 9front as my router, I found myself reaching for some
kind of 'firewall'. I find that we already have a pretty good interface in the kernel
in the form of ipmux. But there isn't too many ways of making use of it as is. I hacked up
something quick to just drop packets matching a filter on to the floor. If others find it
useful I can make up a man page and present again with a bit more polish.

Some examples:
# Drop inbound private range
ip/null 'ifc=my.external.ip;dst=|'

# google verboden
ip/null 'ifc=my.internal.ip;dst=;src='
