At-symbol meaning

  • Hi,

    For the most part, I got pfsense up and running and everything is working great.  I do find that the firewall drops some connections every now and then for reasons that are unknown.  I was hoping somebody could tell me what the "@" symbol means when you click on a rule.  For example…

    @115 block drop in log quick all label "Default deny rule"

    What does @115 mean?  Is there a way to see the exact rule that is causing this to be blocked?

    I don't want to turn this into a 'help me fix my firewall' thread, but for a little background, there are *'s across everything on this vlan, so I would assume that everything is allowed.  I'm thinking that if I knew what the @115 means, I can track down the exact rule that is causing this issue.


  • They are the internal rule numbers the pf(4) filter assigns to the rules. To see the numbers run this in shell or command prompt in the webgui:

    pfctl -g -sr
