Well, the setup and loading of Postgresql9.6 seems to have completed
successfully.  Now, before this can go live I need to set up the
firewall.  I am used to IPTables on CentOS but have no experience with
IPFilter or PF.

First, which firewall, of the three I read are available (IPFW,
IPFilter and PF is the recommended choice?

Which of them, if any, have FW for dummies like tools/guides?
