I'd start with looking up posts about "Automated config.xml remote backup"
and use the methods described there, though modified to turn the rule on and
This will probably involve looking at the rules form at the very least, to
possibly looking at the PHP code that processes the form.
If you are successful, you'll have a shell script or two (one for "off" and
another for "on") that you can do what you please with.

Subject: [m0n0wall] Turning on and off a port at certain time....Please help
I am in need of turning on/off a specific port (i.e. License Manager port
for Flex) across the VPN. This would allow
our people to be able to use a specific product here and not at the other
site. Then at a certain time I could turn
the port back on and they could use it again. Normally I would create a
crontab or similar. Is there a way
to do this. The port is 5281 across VPN.
