Re: Absent Interfaces Handling

Hi,

I've read that since 3.5 PF can load rules for absent interfaces.
After some tests I've found that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

Can anyone tell me which interfaces are compatible ?


with 3.5, PF look if the interface you're trying to load can be
hot-plugged (pc-card, usb and such). example 2 worked because
all the interfaces you tried exist in usb or pc-card versions.
