Illuminate firewall agent


The Illuminate solution provides advanced traffic analytics for Fusion SD-WAN. These analytics can used to block or steer traffic. This is an example to block bittorrent.

sudo apt-get install git autogen libtool build-essential
git clone
cd netify-fwa
sudo make install
sudo service netify-fwa stop
mkdir /var/run/netify-fwa
mkdir /usr/local/var
mkdir /usr/local/var/run
mkdir /usr/local/var/run/netify-fwa
nano /etc/netifyd.conf

# Add to end of file
listen_path[0] = /var/run/netifyd/netifyd.sock

service netifyd restart
cd /usr/local/sbin
netify-fwa -d
nano /usr/local/etc/netify-fwa/netify-fwa.ini

# Modify
interfaces-external = eth1
interfaces-internal = br0

nano /usr/local/etc/netify-fwa/netify-fwa.json

  "version": "1.0",
