     pf - packet filter

     pseudo-device pf 1

     The pf interface is a packet filter pseudo-device for IPv4 and IPv6.

     pf is administered using the pfctl(8) utility, or through an ioctl inter-

     /dev/pf  packet filtering device.

     pf supports to following ioctl(2) commands:

             Starts the packet filter.

             Stops the packet filter.

     DIOCBEGINRULES u_int32_t
             Clears the inactive filter rule set, returns ticket for subse-
             quent DIOCADDRULE and DIOCCOMMITRULES calls.

                     struct pf_rule   rule;

             Adds filter rule at the end of the inactive filter rule set.  Re-
             quires ticket obtained through preceding DIOCBEGINRULES call.  nr
             is ignored.

     DIOCCOMMITRULES u_int32_t
             Switch inactive to active filter rule set.  Requires ticket

     DIOCGETRULES struct pfioc_rule
             Returns ticket for subsequent DIOCGETRULE calls and nr of rules
             in the active filter rule set.

     The pf packet filtering mechanism first appeared in OpenBSD 3.0.

     Probably several.
