cdist-type__pf_apply_anchor - Man Page

Apply a pf(4) anchor on $__target_host

Description

This type is used on *BSD systems to manage anchors for the pf firewall.

Notice this type does not take care of copying the ruleset, that must be done by the user with, e.g. __file.

Optional Parameters

anchor_name

The name of the anchor to apply. If not set, ${__object_id} is used. This type requires /etc/pf.d/${anchor_name} to exist on $__target_host.

Examples

# Copy anchor file to ${__target_host}
__file "/etc/pf.d/80_dns" --source - <<EOF
# Managed remotely, changes will be lost

pass quick proto {tcp,udp} from any to any port domain
EOF

# Apply the anchor
require="__file/etc/pf.d/80_dns" __pf_apply_anchor 80_dns
# This is roughly equivalent to:
#   pfctl -a "${anchor_name}" -f "/etc/pf.d/${anchor_name}"
