Take a look at the macros that define the external and internal
networks. They are called "ext_if" and "int_if". If you don't have an
internal network, remove all lines that have "localnet" or "int_if" in them.

Make sure that the "ext_if" macro matches your network interface. Look
at the output of the "ifconfig" command, and disregard lo0, pflog0 and
plip0. You're looking for the network device that has a "status: active"
line in the ifconfig output.

Do not change the order of the lines in the file! pf expects them to be
in a certain order. See 'man pf.conf'.

If that still doesn't work, let me know and I'll send you a cleaned-up
copy off the list.
