You do not need to specify interface, if no interface is specified the
rule is applied to all interfaces. In fact you could have just
but you may prefer
pass quick all keep state
I think it is possible to set a default rule, which for security should
be block, which means that any packet that falls through your rule set
will be blocked. Therefore, you should have "pass quick".
The official guide is really good:
Try using snort or tcpdump on each interface to see where the packet
goes missing. Say you ping from a host on the network attached to em0 to
a host on the network attached to em1, sniff on each interface and see
if the packet comes through.
