IPfilter changes?



Hi Folks,

I've investigated further and come to the conclusion, that
the ipfilter on my box does no longer keep the state all.
It doesn't work any more for both TCP und UDP.

I tried to initiate a ssh connection to a host, that is
not explicitly permitted, and I can see that its replies
are blocked by ipfilter:

Maybe the ruleset processing order has changed? Here are relevant
rules, as used in the kernel. I use ipfstat -oi to show you my rules:
[..]

pass out quick on lo0 from any to any
pass out quick proto icmp from any to any
pass out quick proto tcp/udp from any to any keep state keep frags

block in from any to any
pass in quick on lo0 from any to any
pass in quick from 131.159.72.12/32 to any
block in quick proto tcp from any to any with short
block in log level local7.notice from any to any
block in log level local7.notice proto tcp from any to any
 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This is the rule, that blocks the packet according to the log (@7).
[..]
block return-rst in log level local7.notice quick proto tcp from any to any port = 1080
block return-rst in log level local7.notice quick proto tcp from any to any port = 3128
block return-rst in log level local7.notice quick proto tcp from any to any port = 8080
block in proto udp from any to any
pass in quick proto icmp from any to any
block in quick from any to 224.0.0.0/8
[ rules with special host exceptions omitted ]

Maybe there is now a special keyword required to make a states
overrule blocking rules?

If I display current state in 'top' mode, and try to initiate a
connection, the state does not get added! Only states of connections,
that can be established due to explicitly allowed rules seem to get added.

So that seems to be the problem, that somehow a connection is only 
added to the state tables, once it is established? That would
explain why it breaks now, but I'm not sure, if I'm just doing something
wrong?

Any explanations appreciated.

Best regards,
 Daniel
