pf is packet filter for *BSD.

Here is a sample ruleset that does nothing much except block one IP address to the web server on port 80.

ext_if="em0"    # replace with actual external interface name i.e., dc0
int_if="em1"    # replace with actual internal interface name i.e., dc1
scrub in all
pass in all
pass out all
block in quick on $ext_if proto tcp from to any port 80

Start pf with the ruleset above (in /etc/pf.conf)

pf -F -f /etc/pf.conf

On FreeBSD you can use the rc script, assumes proper settings in /etc/rc.conf

/etc/rc.d/pf start

View the ruleset matches

pfctl -v -s rules
