Syntax error in config file: pf rules not loaded



  • Hi, I am having trouble with the Traffic Shaper.
    It worked well for a couple of days after creating my initial ruleset through the wizard.  I made some modifications using the GUI and now have the following problems:
    There were error(s) loading the rules:
    /tmp/rules.debug:22: syntax error

    /tmp/rules.debug:41: errors in queue definition pfctl:
    Syntax error in config file: pf rules not loaded -
    The line in question reads [22]: altq on fxp0 hfsc bandwidth queue { qwanRoot qlanRoot }…

    I also notice that some of the items selected during the wizard do not appear in the completed rules list, most notably the penalised IP option and I also do not see any rules for ACKs.

    I am using pfSense 1.2.1
