What is the relation between firewall configurations in /etc/config/firewall and the firewall settings you do using the
I am trying to ask a question analogous to that which one may ask about LuCI and /etc/config/firewall or any other config file. I came to see LuCI as a means of entering lines into config files. On this view, the config files are 'real,' and LuCI 'represents' them. But I may be wrong and should rather think both LuCI and the config files as a means for manipulating/representing a third substrate, which is 'real.'
Going back to the actual question of the post, is /etc/config/firewall a way to manipulate/represent the
iptables settings? Or are they related in some other way?
I may not even have the right terminology to phrase the question, but hope something of it was conveyed.
