PF Traffic Shaping question.
Alright this is probably an easy question. The wording in the PF handbook kind of confuses me a little bit.
"When using the queue keyword with rules that keep state such as:
pass in on fxp0 proto tcp from any to any port 22 flags S/SA \
keep state queue ssh
PF will record the queue in the state table entry so that packets traveling back out fxp0 that match the stateful connection will end up in the ssh queue. Note that even though the queue keyword is being used on a rule filtering incoming traffic, the goal is to specify a queue for the corresponding outgoing traffic; the above rule does not queue incoming packets."
Does this mean when the traffic enters fxp0 and talks to the server and it sends information back that the information would get put into a download queue on fxp0? Or does it mean that the fxp0 will queue the traffic on the next outgoing interface in an upload fashion?
