I've never bothered looking at that, coz early on I set up some scripts
to handle fw script distribution and it's always worked so well I've
never needed to check out fwbd.

If you've got key-based SSH authentication from your machine to your
firewall box, a distribution script can be as trivial as:

scp $afile root@
echo "SCPd $afile to firewall1"
ssh root@ /etc/firewall/firewall1.fw
echo "Executed new firewall script"

List that as the installation script in the firewall profile in
fwbuilder and you're set for point-n-click activation.

Cheers  :-)
