Folks --

If you are using IPFW or IPFilter or PF as a packet filer/firewall on your FreeBSD system I am interested in hearing about your configuration and satisfaction with your setup. How did you make your dwecision? What type of hardware are you running this on? Do you have anything else running on that computer besides the firewall? Have you had any breakins in spite of this protection? Would you consider OpenBSD as an alternative for a firewall because of its security and ease of using and managing PF?

Thanks for any comments.
