Response to: Slight error

You are correct, I am using the term 'state-full' incorrectly here. What I wanted to get across was that ipfw did have a memory of previous connections and could recognise a packet as belonging to an already established / permitted connection.

Having said that 'state-full' does have a technical meaning in regards to firewalls an missusing it isn't going to help anybody.

Thanks again for the correction.
