Bastille create uses any available bootstrapped release to create a lightweight jailed system. To create a jail simply provide a name, bootstrapped release and a private (rfc1918) IP address.

  • name
  • release
  • ip
ishmael ~ # bastille create folsom 11.2-RELEASE

NAME: folsom.

This command will create a 11.2-RELEASE jail assigning the ip address to the new system.

I recommend using private (rfc1918) ip address ranges for your jails. These ranges include:


Bastille does its best to validate the submitted ip is valid. This has not been thouroughly tested--I generally use the 10/8 range.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
