perl-IPTables-ChainMgr

Perl extension for manipulating iptables policies

The IPTables::ChainMgr package provides an interface to manipulate iptables policies on Linux systems through the direct execution of iptables commands. Although making a perl extension of libiptc provided by the iptables project is possible, it is easy to just execute iptables commands directly in order to both parse and change the configuration of the policy. Further, this simplifies installation since the only external requirement is (in the spirit of scripting) to be able to point IPTables::ChainMgr at an installed iptables binary instead of having to compile against a library.

There is no official package available for openSUSE Leap 15.1
