I want to thank everyone for responding to this, in particular Mike
Lewinski for the tcpdump and Darren Reed for some insight.

OpenBSD 3.1's pf, correct?
I will try to get it to work, but if it does not work, it seems I have
1. Install IPFilter on OpenBSD
2. Replace OpenBSD with NetBSD or FreeBSD, which come with IPFilter
3. Replace OpenBSD with Linux and use IPTables
Third option does not look too good, since the firewall/gateway machines
in question only have 1.2 GB drives and 32 MB RAM.
Am I wrong in my assumptions, or can anyone suggest any other solutions?
