Perl-Script, handling iptables, to be modifed

An existing Perl script has to be modified.

Actually, the script reads a sequential text-file, containing IPs, and specifies some rules for iptables, using the IPs from the file. The actual script is run only once.

This behaviour has to be changed the following way:

- A sequential text-file, containing the list of IPs, is not to be used any more.

- Instead, in the config-file for the new script "[url removed, login to view]", called "[url removed, login to view]", a list of variable length, containing the paths to various directories have to be specified, which must to be searched for the IPs to be processed.

- Within the specified directories, there exist files with the exact names of the IPs to be processed, like "[url removed, login to view]".

But there might be other files, too, not obeying the syntax of an IP. These files have to be ignored.

- The new script "[url removed, login to view]" needs to run like a daemon, to be started only once, with the cycle time to repeat the complete processing.

For example, to be started like "[url removed, login to view] --cycle=n", with "n" as the cycle time in seconds.

- The new script has to store its PID in "/var/run" in "[url removed, login to view]"

All the other functionality has to be taken from th existing script,

which will be provided to qualified bidder to refine their bids.
