Pfctl vs. ipfw also where is the DMZ?
So If I underdtand this correctly ….. pfctl now handles the showing of firewall rules and ipfw is what I should use to add any new rules at the command line?
Is there a place in the GUI for a DMZ of is this done via the command line? If so can anyone give me the ipfw commands to add one? maybe a virtual IP DMZ
everything is handled by pf and through the gui. There are different ways how to create a dmz. Use http://doc.m0n0.ch/handbook-single/#id2604955 for an example. It's similiar with pfSense.
Thanks hobba I have been getting lots of good info from your posts all over the forum.
Is it safe to say that since pf is based on m0n0 that if I read the entire m0m0 handbook (your link) it would be mostly helpful?
Lots of things are similiar at the frontend though the backend handles them different (like different filter mechanisms). That's why some of the options shown when editing a firewallrule are different for example. However the "basic concept" is pretty similiar, at least when talking about basic NAT and firewallrules.
