Sorry, `setup' only works with the TCP packets (I missed you used `all'
there). `ipfw add 900 allow log tcp from any to any setup' should work.
You can't use this with not-connection-oriented protocols, like UDP, and
you'll probably have to either add the additional 'allow log udp from
any to any' (which will nag you every time the machine does a DNS
lookup) or just not log the UDP packets.

Talkers are no good doers.
