Hi everyone,

Iīve got an odd problem when booting with a firewall_type="filename". In the
file( /etc/ipfw.rules ) I add the next rules:

add 00100 allow ip from any to any via lo0
add 00200 deny ip from any to
add 00300 deny ip from to any
add 01002 deny hmp from to
add 10000 allow tcp from to
add 23232 allow i-nlsp from to
add 56565 prob 0.400000 allow log logamount 12000 tcp from not 3456,8765,1511,1469 to 
123,5678,68,2016,998 uid uucp gid man keep-state 1234 bridged in recv ppp0 
ipopt ssrr,lsrr tcpflags syn,ack tcpoptions mss,window
add 65000 allow ip from any to any
add 65535 deny ip from any to any

The problem is in rule 56565. When booting i get the following message:

ipfw:Line 7: too many arguments

and the remaining rules arenīt added. The rule 56565 is in the file 
excusively to test if ipfw fails, and thatīs exactly what has happen.

Any idea please?

Thanks in advance. Best regards.
