Don't forget about the third one, called pf. ;)
It's a hard question. What does matter is which of them is best the *for
You*. As for me I use ipf and ipfw together. I think ipf is very easy to
configure but ipfw has more sophisticated features, for instance it can
be used for bandwith controlling via dummynet facility. As for pf, I
don't know it.
