A solid understanding of OpenBSD's PF subsystem is a necessity for any network administrator working in a *BSD environment. The Book of PF is a current, -nsense guidebook to harnessing the power of PF. Its contents include coverage of NAT (network address translation), wireless networking, spam fighting, traffic shaping, failover provisioning, and logging. Written for anyone who has felt lost in PF's manual pages or baffled by its massive feature set, author Peter Hansteen helps readers confidently build the high-performance, low maintenance network they need.
Peter N. M. Hansteen is a consultant, writer and sysadmin based in Bergen, Norway. A longtime Freenix advocate, Hansteen is a frequent lecturer on FreeBSD and OpenBSD topics. His expertise as a documentation consultant (and humorous work with the RFC 1149 implementation team) have helped him gain regard in Norwegian IT publications. The Book of PF, Hansteen's first book, is an expanded follow-up to his very popular online PF tutorial.
