An interesting idea you raised... is there a way to trigger monowall to
reconfigure itself after receiving a new XML file?

If so, people's concerns about coming up with an easy way to configure
gazillions of monowalls could be made simple... a cron job on monowall can
run rsync or fetch to pull down an XML file and a checksum form a remote web
(with SSL?) or scp server and then run "monowall reconfigure" to
reconfigure...

If we really wanted bullet proof, the cron job could verify continuing
remote connectivity after the reload and roll back to the previous config if
the update caused the box to lose it's connection to the remote network.

Just a thought - any comments on this - is the functinoality already there
somewhere?

cheers.
