Well...I was surprised that no one replied. I was trying to figure 
out why ppp-user would start BEFORE pf fired up....

It appears easy enough to change, but its untested:

Edit /etc/rc.d/ppp-user:

# $FreeBSD: src/etc/rc.d/ppp-user,v 1.7 2004/12/15 12:39:28 brian Exp $

# PROVIDE: ppp-user
# REQUIRE: netif isdnd pf <--- add pf
# KEYWORD: nojail


Then rcorder shows things BETTER:


my only concern might be that tun0 is not created until ppp-user 
launches (correct me if I am wrong) and pf might have an issue with 
an interface that doesnt yet exist. Under OpenBSD, tun0 is there 
before ppp even starts.
Wouldnt we WANT pf to be active prior to ppp launching (like in openbsd?)

Can someone kindly comment on this please?

thanks guys!
