IPFW Better way to reload network config



Thanks: 4
Messages: 22

I have a IPFW with complicated staff of rules.
Bridge, nat, fwd, redirect_port, wlan several tables are present here.
There are several jails on the host, related by local network.
If i edit my network config and run /etc/rc.d/netif restart && service routing restart, this gives a bad result. Some of the services will be unavailable, some of them will be disabled.
Probably, IPFW needs to restart too, but in complex this will us to catastrophe, in respect that i have ssh access only.
How to accomplish this properly? Or server reboot only is "the true way"?
