Hi guyz, like I've said in other topic, I'm building a BSD box that'll act
as a gateway between three private networks and the internet. I want that
each private network can ping to each other, and I can do that till I
activate my pf firewall. When I do pfctl -e it stop working.

The output of pfctl -sr is:
pass in all
pass out all

So I guess it would pass anything, why it isn't happening?


You need to specify from/to what interface it should pass (if you have more
than one NIC, which i assume you do, since the box is acting as a router).

You do not need to specify interface, if no interface is specified the rule is applied to all interfaces. In fact you could have just

  pass all

but you may prefer

  pass quick all keep state

I think it is possible to set a default rule, which for security should be block, which means that any packet that falls through your rule set will be blocked. Therefore, you should have "pass quick".

The official guide is really good:

Try using snort or tcpdump on each interface to see where the packet goes missing. Say you ping from a host on the network attached to em0 to a host on the network attached to em1, sniff on each interface and see if the packet comes through.
