I came across an interesting item. I believe (but I'm not entirely
sure if I am correct) that NetBSD implies S/SA for TCP keep
state and it no longer needs to be specified in the rule. Is this
Yes, quoting http://www.openbsd.org/faq/pf/filter.html:
In OpenBSD 4.1 and later, the default flags S/SA are applied to all TCP
Since OpenBSD 4.1, "keep state" is also the default.
