problem on pf @ freebsd 7.0
hello there. sorry if this similar question been asked before in this forum.
my problem is, i install freebsd 7.0 and after that compile the kernel to enable pf (using the same method like freebsd's handbook said):
and i put everything inside /etc/rc.conf
and guess what? pf is not loading when startup. i have to manually restarted the pf using /etc/rc.d/pf restart. seems like rc.d/pf doesn't work although rc.conf set pf_enable="YES"
is that a bug? i never have this kind of problem when using version 5.* or 6.*
plus, kldstat only shows:
Id Refs Address Size Name
1 7 0xc0400000 910b90 kernel
2 1 0xc0d11000 6a32c acpi.ko
3 1 0xc6c4f000 22000 linux.ko
after that, i try to put:
inside /boot/loader.conf and also doesn't work.
i already compile the kernel with pf and put appropriate line inside /etc/rc.conf
and the pf still do not loading when freebsd 7.0 boot up.
To troubleshoot, try swapping back to the GENERIC kernel and see if PF loads. I know that ALTQ will not be in the kernel, but the goal here is to get PF loading upon startup.
Additionally, you do not need all those lines in rc.conf to get PF running. This is all that is needed:
I think switching back to GENERIC to test is a good approach.
You might also look at dmesg -a | less and then search for 'pf' to see if it's trying to start at boot time (and failing).
Kill your t.v.
hello there. i think this conversation can be closed right now. when i try to look at dmesg output:
May 14 16:09:53 pflogd: [priv]: msg PRIV_OPEN_LOG received
no IP address found for securehost.xxx.xx
could not parse host specification
Syntax error in config file: pf rules not loaded
which securehost.xxx.xx cannot be resolved while booting because no dns server was contacted. when i remove the hosts from pf.conf then pf is loaded when booting.
thank you for now
credited to anomie that suggested to look at dmesg output
