Title: CLI Configuration
Post by: DaveA67 on February 21, 2018, 11:22:49 am

New to OpnSense.

I am looking to deploy OpnSense firewalls to virtual appliances in a cloud set up. (Similar to AWS)
I can deploy an OpnSense virtual machine easy enough but of course until it's configured I will have to VPN access to the virtual appliance to manage via the web gui and the only way to use a web GUI without that would be to deploy another VM in the Virtual appliance to make use of a machine with a browser!

Is there a way to configure OpnSense via the Shell?

All config seems to be in a XML file and would obviously prefer not to edit that directly!

many thanks!

There is an API which is to be extended for firewall rules: https://forum.opnsense.org/index.php?topic=6415.msg33401
