    ...just like those strange iptables-scripts *sigh*
    I think in pf this many macros doesn't really make sense. In many cases its ok, but this is _really_ awfull.
    But anyhow, it's a nice example for anyone who doesn't likes to read the manpage.

      I agree, this is one case where macros really don't make the task any easier. They do make it painfully obvious what he is doing (which was probably the point) but I doubt a newbie will be able to sort through all the cruft to figure out how to make his own ruleset.

      It's always good to have something new to read I guess.

        That's true in any case :)
