I tried changing the rc.firewall script so that the last line in the
CLIENT section read
${fwcmd} add 65535 deny ip from any to any log
but ipfw list still just showd
65535 deny ip from any to any log

where should that rule with the log go in the list ? Before the last
line ? 

Should I add a rule before 65535 that logs things ?
