Re: OBSD firewall/router and DSL
just go to rc.conf.local (prefered) or rc.conf
and disable inetd. You can run services as daemons.
Is more secure and stable to run services out of inetd.
As for pf the openbsd site pf section is a grate guide for someone
to write a firewall for dsl home and not only use as you want.
You will do not need to look elsewhere.

| Turn them all off. Turn them on when somebody important complains.
