I am using Doorman (http://doorman.sourceforge.net)as a port knocking

way to delete them.  Is the only way to specify the exact rule number?


Just use awk to extract the number. One way to handle it would be to write each add rule to a text file. Then, when you want to delete the rule, you grab the IP address from the text file, and then use awk to find the right rule. Something like this:

${fwcmd} delete `awk '/$IP/ {print $1}'`
