Hi Manolis & everyone else, `ipdivert.ko' works fine as a module too. You don't really *have* to recompile the kernel, but we probably have to update the relevant Handbook bits to mention that `ipdivert.ko' can be kldload'ed now. Adding a few options in `loader.conf' should preload IPFW and DIVERT in the running kernel: ipfw_load="YES" ipdivert_load="YES" Then the rest of the `rc.conf' options described in the current text work as expected. I can't boot my 6.2-RELEASE installation today to verify that this works in that version too, but if you have one around and it seems to work, let me know and I'll handle the doc bits :-)
