Hi,

I know this is a little late...

If you want to time enable / disable a filter for a specific port or
range
of IP addresses / whatever, my Traffic Shaper can, with the help of
CRON,
easily do that. Basically the TSE's rule set would consist of the
filters
you wanted, and you can use CRON to switch the shaper on / off or use
cron
to change the active rule set. This happens instantaneously without
the
spooky "brain-swapping" required with IPFLT's config file. This
works, of
course, in conjunction with your existing filters, so its easy to
implement
/ undo.... I have a lot of sites doing this for modification of
allowed
data rates based on time of day, and so I'm pretty sure it would work
for
filtering too.
