Retired Firewall Tools

These tools were used to produce documentation from firewall configuration files. Sometimes necessity is no longer given (e.g. ReadConfig), sometimes I just moved on and have no more need to use the software myself.

The latest firewall documentation system FWdoc was intended to producinge a vendor-indpendent intermediate file which then can be filtered and converted into numerous other formats.

Fortunately basically all vendors nowadays allow an export of firewall rulesets in a readable format (usually HTML), so these tools are no longer needed.


These Programs are no longer actively maintained.



No program is (officially) supported by the associated products' companies as Eagle/Axent/Symantec or Checkpoint or Sun or Astaro - or representatives.
