	In the man of ipfw command there are this information

             Matches TCP packets that have the RST or ACK bits set."

	I think it's wrong information because the established packets have ACK and SYN bits set. 
	And I think a packet with the ACK and RST bits is a very strange notion.
	But I'm not a TCP/IP specialist.
	If it's me not understand the man, for adavance I'm very sorry.

	Thanks you very much for you attention and your faboulous works

	Juste type man ipfw

	maybe some vi ;-))
