IPF/PF are vasylt more sane to figgure out than iptables.

PF in particular, is a dream - port forwarding, filtering, cleaning and shapeing configured in one easy to use text file.

Also do conisder the whole environment, a default OpenBSD with PF will be more secure than a default Red Hat 8.1 with iptables. (In addition, the OpenBSD box will be more stable IMHO)

Just like Linux is great for latest released of desktops, browsers and office suites, OpenBSD is great for firewalls, authentication and stability.

The both have their place.
