:>     discovery to work properly, you can't just turn off all ICMP.  
:>     e.g.  packet-too-big, echo, echo-reply, unreachable, traceroute,
:>     ttl-exceeded, and parameter-problem should generally be allowed through.
:>     I forget the icmp numbers for them but those are the ones that have
:>     to be allowed.
:updated to use the defaults of firewall(7)
:>     Also, certain tcp ports have to either be allowed (even if no service
:>     is running), or a reset has to be sent for connection attempts on them.
:>     Well, at least one tcp port anyway, that being 'auth', port 113.
:>     Otherwise auth requests made by, e.g. remote sendmails, will create
:>     unnecessary delays.
:We can do that by adding 113 to open ports - updated.

    Excellent. I am doing a bit of testing and am almost ready to commit it.

    May I have permission to add an official DFly copyright?  The lines you
    added aren't quite enough.

    i.e. the below.  No need to update your patch, I will commit as soon as
    we get this last little bit resolved.
