IP Filter can be used to provide firewall services or network address translation (NAT). IP Filter can be implemented using loadable configuration files. IP Filter includes a directory called /etc/ipf. You can create and store configuration files called ipf.conf, ipnat.conf and ippool.conf in the /etc/ipf directory. These files are loaded automatically during the boot process when they reside in the /etc/ipf directory. You can also store the configuration files in another location and load the files manually. For example configuration files, see Creating and Editing IP Filter Configuration Files.
