# To load new rules:
#               ipf -Fa -f /etc/ipf.rules
#               ipnat -CF -f /etc/ipnat.rules
# You can use ipfstat to display firewall statistics a la ``top" command:
#               ipfstat -t
# to display the current list of active MAP/Redirect filters and active sessions:
#               ipnat -l
# to find out the `hit' statistic for each individual rule in /etc/ipf.rules:
#               ipfstat -hio
# to show current rules:
#               ipfstat -i -o
