Description Rodney W. Grimes freebsd_committer 2017-05-04 23:24:23 UTC
This option is not documented in the ifpw(4) man page, or
an ipfw_nat(4) man page does not exist.

sys/conf/files:netpfil/ipfw/ip_fw_nat.c optional inet ipfirewall_nat

I'll grab this PR (doc contributor) => Assignee: Dries Michiels

Hi Rod,

Do you think that adding a section with KERNEL config switches to the manpage is a good thing? At the moment the switches are documented in the handbook it seems. Although, the manpage is probably the "master" for info like this I recon. I'm happy to add a section to the manpage.

"IPFW kernel options"
Comment 2 Dries Michiels freebsd_committer 2020-04-22 09:20:49 UTC
Oh I see, I'll complete the list in ipfw(4) and add a few notes in the description.
Comment 3 Rodney W. Grimes freebsd_committer 2020-04-22 16:27:10 UTC
There should probably be some MLINKS added to share/man/man4/Makefile as well.
