What version of pf does pfsense 2.0.1 use?
« on: May 04, 2012, 11:23:55 am »
I've been tinkering with pfsense 2.0.1. Previously I had spent considerable time building my own nanobsd 9.0 images and configuring pf manually from the CLI using pf.conf. I noticed this morning that pfsense has an option to create a "queue" rule on the "Floating Rule" page. This creates a "match" rule instead of the standard "block" or "pass" rule in pf.conf.

As far as I understood it, FreeBSD 9.0 is using pf 4.5, which does not include the "match" rule syntax. Yet, pfsense 2.0.1, which is based on FreeBSD 8.1, does have the "match" rules? Is this a pfsense specific patch? Is pfsense using a different version of pf?

Perfect, that's what I thought. So, even though the "match" rule only appears when selecting the "queue" type from the Floating Rules menu, presumably I can use it for the other things "match" is used for in pf?
