I want to install a firewall on my system. First of all, is PF the
one I should be using? It seems to get the most recommendations.
I don't actually seem to have any problems configuring it - I just
have some problems testing the configuration. I can ssh to the box,
and I can access port 80...but I'd like to be able to just scan it to
quickly see what's up. When PF is disabled, I can nmap it in about 9
seconds. When I turn it on, it takes over 3 minutes to do. These
machines are on the same network, so the connection is obviously fast.
Are there any good, pretty simple guides on setting up PF? I'm having
a tough time understanding what the rulesets all mean.
