Summary1817: Add firewall and NAT rules
it will be very handy to have firewall and NAT rules in racktables. I think basic table with these collumns will be enough for now:

source ip/hostname | port/port range |destination ip/hostname | port | description | enabled/disabled|
TagsNo tags attached.

Hello Neci,

If a basic table is enough, then it's in Racktables right now, if you want to go through some steps.
That's my suggestion:

Create a new object-type called "Nat-rule", or something like that (go to Main page : Configuration : Dictionary : Chapter 'ObjectType' - Edit). Make note of the numeric ID of your new object type
Then create the desiered attributes, like "sourceIP", "portRange" and so on (Main page : Configuration : Attributes - Edit attributes). The attribute type should be "string"
Assign your new attributes to your newly created Object-Type (Main page : Configuration : Attributes - Edit map).
As the last step, you should hide some useless tabs from the objects page. Go to Main page : Configuration : Permissions - Edit and add the following line:
deny ({$typeid_XXXX} and ({$tab_ip} or {$tab_rackspace} or {$tab_ports}))
where XXXX is the numeric ID of your new object type.

For a table view of your Objects of the new type consider to implement Sebastian Mogilowski's Racktabes Extensions
Sebastian's extensions are very usefull anyway.

Have fun

Designing and implementing this feature from scratch and making it work properly would take time. Right now I am not aware of any volunteers actually willing to commit into this work, so I am closing the request as "will not fix". You are welcome to move the discussion to the users mailing list to state the problem and to look for contributors to solve it (or to integrate RackTables and some other pre-existing firewall rule manager, which may be much simpler).
