What's the difference between ipf and ipfw? If I'm using ipfw, is there any reason to switch?

There are lots of <A HREF="/topics.php#ipfilter">articles on ipf</A>. I prefer it over ipfw. It's multi-platform, not just FreeBSD. I find it easier to configure than ipfw. I also like the way the NAT is quite separate from the filtering.

If you like ipfw, there is no reason for you to change to ipf.

IPFW has the dummynet traffic throttler built in...
