Firewall Builder for PIX hides the complexity of PIX command line interface and automatically configures options and parameters that usually make manual configuration a real chore. With this module, the same workstation running Firewall Builder can create and manage security policy on Cisco PIX or FWSM firewalls, as well as on firewalls built with iptables, OpenBSD pf, or ipfilter.

Release Notes: Starting with this version, Firewall Builder for PIX has been released under the GPL and became a part of the main Firewall Builder code tree and binary packages.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug where the policy compiler generated unnecessary "clear acl" commands for the ACLs used in "nat" and "static" commands. Further minor improvements have been made in the fwb_pix_diff utility for PIX 7.x.
Release Notes: Besides a few minor bugfixes, this release comes with an experimental utility fwb_pix_diff that can generate command sequences to make small changes in large ACL and NAT commands for PIX 7.0. This utility will be integrated into the Firewall Builder built-in policy installer in the future.
Release Notes: This version supports Cisco PIX 7.0 and implements outbound ACLs and "inspect" commands. It works with Firewall Builder 2.1 and takes full advantage of its new features, such as new object types and improved performance.
Release Notes: This release adds support for Cisco FWSM.
