APF is pretty powerful, it may be better for ASL to provide some sort of interface into the apf config file so that you can easily change it and reload the firewall rules, etc from inside the GUI instead of maybe writing a new firewall from scratch - but if you guys want to make one even better than APF be my guest :)

First of all hello to all coming from the uk.

Great product and quite amazed at all the stuff the package can do and who and how it blocks.

I would consider myself a newbie just getting into the whole command line thing and learning how my server works.

Any hooks into something like APF are definitely welcome to gives us newbies something fluffy to play with ;0)

Looking forward to the new functionality in the next version!

APF isn't really a firewall. It's a nice and neat frontend to iptables so you don't have to remember all the arcane statements iptables takes. So hooking into APF would be a little backwards since APF is hooked into iptables. I'd rather see ASL Firewall be standalone. This way it's only tied to iptables and not also tied to APF.
