Hi,

okay okay, what you say's is more correctly, ipfw ist only the
control-frontend to the ipfilter/netfilter-implementation under FreeBSD :-).

May i think the question from frgaddeo@tin.it
sound's like:

can i see an process for the ipfw/ipfilter/ipfirewall if it was running
or active?

Or i have it misunderstood.

May thank you for this hint.

Have a good time

michael
