How can I reload the config after manually editing config.xml

There isn't one single way to reload the entirety of config.xml short of rebooting the firewall. To apply changes updating a specific section of config.xml, run:

  • rm /tmp/config.cache
  • On a page relevant to the config area changed, press the Save button.

The command viconfig will bring up the config.xml in vi, and upon exiting vi, removes the configuration cache file automatically.
