Hi List,

I have a FreeBSD 4.7(i386) Release router I am trying to make it run
with the ipf firewall on.

I have compiled and installed a new kernel with ipf support and then I
put the following lines inside my rc.conf file:

ipfilter_program="/sbin/ipf -Fa -f"

The problem is that, when I boot, ipf does not work. It seems like is
not using the rules.

If I enter "ipf -Fa -f /etc/ipf.rules" from the command line, then it
starts working as expected. 

What do I have to do to make ipf start automatically on boot? Any tips
or pointers to manuals will be greatly appreciated.

running with  security level set to 1 and -1 without any luck.)
