No-op firewall rule action

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

While debugging firewall rules, it would be useful to simply log matches without causing a packet accept/reject.

 

I'd like to see an additional Action - "Ignore" or "Do nothing" so I can simply log or see rule matches.

Hi @RodDavison,

 

When the firewall receives a packet for inspection it has to perform an action. If the router were to do nothing/ignore the packet, the result would be the same as passing it through the firewall (ie accept).
