Thank you for such a great book. I picked it up to see if I had missed
when I set up my OpenBSD firewall at home a month earlier (I wish I had the
book then!).

One question though. Some people put their default policy first then allow
what they need, 
while others (like me) put it last, using the "quick" option to allow only
what is needed in
the beginning of the ruleset? I felt safer doing the latter way since I was
afraid I might leave 
something open I shouldn't have.

Is there a reason why I should NOT be doing it the first way?

thanks again for the good balanced book!
