IPA = Indian Pale Ale?

Valentin - I'm not sure what you're asking, so let's start with the basics.

1.  Start your email with the question you want to ask or the problem you'd like to solve.  Even better, include this in the subject of the message.

2.  Be sure to tell us what operating system you're running, including version, etc.

3.  Make sure before you've posted that you've checked out the various man pages, online documentation, and mailing list archives before you post to this list.

I'm guessing from your message that you're running a BSDish Unix and are having trouble configuring your firewall.  Without more detail I can't help you though.  Did you check for an answer to your problem on http://www.google.com/linux or http://www.google.com/bsd?

Subject: [buug] IPA configuration!

Hi everybody,
Here is what I added in my ipa.conf :

startup {
      exec=/sbin/ipfw 100 allow all ip from any to out xmit ed0
      exec=/sbin/ipfw 101 allow all ip from to any in recv ed0

rule PC1 {
     ipfw=100 101
     info=Traffic for PC1

I did not permitted firewall in rc.conf since IPA is supposed to do so.
And I got following error message:

.... ipfw rule 100.0 doesn't exist in IPFW kernel table(rule PC1)
.... ipfw rule 101.0 doesn't exist in IPFW kernel table(rule PC1)

When I permit firewall in rc.conf ( ipfirewall_enable=YES )

then I got only the second error message !

My question is do I have to run firewall to get IPA running or what I have 
to do to get it running properly!
Thanks !
