Description Alessandro Sagratini 2021-01-24 12:49:37 UTC
Hello all,
I am reaching out since I am reading the ipfw hand page and I feel there is a typo there, more in details in 31.4.4. section.

"When configuring a stateful NATing firewall, it is neseccary to allow translated packets to be reinjected in the firewall for further processing." 

Shouldn't "neseccary" meant to be "necessary"?
Is it possible for me to send a patch for this? If so, what's the process? Otherwise, I am more than happy if anyone can fix this :)

Thank you,
