    remove the three lines above, leaving only ipfilter_enable="YES"
    in rc.conf.

    if you look at /etc/rc.network you'll see why:

    ${ipfilter_program:-/sbin/ipf} -Fa -f \
        "${ipfilter_rules}" ${ipfilter_flags}

    your settings make it:

    /sbin/ipf -Fa -f -Fa -f /etc/ipf.rules

If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message.    see http://www.eyrie.org./~eagle/faqs/questions.html
