Hi Again

ipfw is sweet ! I've covered most of the basic commands, but one thing poundering my mind is the numbers the rules are based off of. Like for example 64000. Is there any curtain numbers based themes you need to stick to when creating rules.

What I exactly mean

basic open ipfw firewall:

00100 allow ip from any to any via lo0
00200 deny ip from any to
00300 deny ip from to any
65000 allow ip from any to any
65535 deny ip from any to any

When I create some new rules, am I bound to use curtain numbers, or are they all fair game. I know the consepts of the file wall, but just wounder what the numbers exactly mean down to detail. The articles i've read have lacked this point of discription.
