	Hi, all!
I use FreeBSD 4.11-RELEASE-p16 with ipfw2, now machine is running in 
securelevel mode:
# sysctl kern.securelevel
kern.securelevel: 1

and I can't reload ipfw rules from remote machine, as usually I do
ipfw disable firewall
ipfw enable firewall
As you can guess the first rule in is ipfw -f flush.

but now I can't, cause on
# sysctl -w net.inet.ip.fw.enable=0
net.inet.ip.fw.enable: 1
sysctl: net.inet.ip.fw.enable: Operation not permitted

But, when I do /etc/rc.d/ipfw restart on FreeBSD 6.0 or 6.1 that is in the 
same securelevel (1) it works.

All I kin say is when you finds yo'self wanderin' in a peach orchard,
ya don't go lookin' for rutabagas.
