We here at Atomicorp love the command line, so we developed ASL to also be managable from the command line. Anything you can configure or access from the GUI, or can also do from the CLI. This can come in handy if you want to script something ASL does, if you just prefer the command line (like me) or if you ever run into a problem with the GUI.
The key to all of this is the command "asl". It can only be run by root, so if you want to do this make sure you are the root user.
To see what the ASL command line can do, run this command as root:
And that will show you all the ASL command line switches.
So lets look at some of things you can do:
asl -ub 126.96.36.199
That lets you unblock an IP address.
asl -dr 12345 --vhost www.example.com
That lets you disable a rule for the vhost www.example.com
Reloads the ASL firewall rules.
This fixes permissions on ASL directories (in case something or someone has changed them, this will set them back to what they need to be).
And much more. So, if you ever need to do things from the command line with asl, run "asl -h" to see what you can do!
