In section 14.9.3 paragraph 2:
"The IPFW sample rule set (found in /etc/rc.firewall) delivered in the
basic install is outdated, complicated and does not use stateful rules
on the interface facing the public Internet. It exclusively uses legacy
stateless rules which only have the ability to open or close the service
ports. The IPFW example stateful rules sets presented here supercede the
/etc/firewall.rc file distributed with the system."
Is the mention of /etc/firewall.rc in the last sentence a typo? The
file distributed with the system is rc.firewall as mentioned earlier,
correct? Sorry if I misunderstood.
