Include rulseset in firewall
Open, WishlistPublicFEATURE REQUEST


It would be nice to be able to include another rule set in the firewall.

For example, I have a lot of zones that have the basic allow established/related, drop invalid, allow a few icmp types, and allow dns, plus 1 or 2 other rules. It would remove a ton of duplication in the config if it was possible to have an include directive.

This would be best done along with firewall scripts rewrite.

I'm very interested in this as well. Especially when you do lots of filtering based on ipsets that contain adresses from multiple zones, inclusion can save you a lot of redundancy.

Most likely this should be done (after firewall rewrite) as jump statements.
