.... I am trying to get ipfw up & running on my newly minted FreeBSD 9.3 
workstation .... To that end, I added the following to my rc.conf & 
typed in 'service ipfw start', & the ssh connection I was/am working 
over hung/crashed ....


firewall_type="/etc/ipfw.conf  workstation"

I'm fairly sure the 1st line needs to be there, guessing about the rest. 
I can't find out where logged messages are going (some come to the 
screen, a few to /var/log/messages, anything else: ????). Any clues 
appreciated :-) ....
