Reset PF Firewall Automatically While Testing Configuration With Remote Server Over SSH Session

Posted on in Categories , , , , , last updated April 11, 2014

I would like to tell my BSD based PF firewall to flush out the current configuration every 2 minutes. This will help me, when I’m testing a new rules and configuration options. Some time I find myself locked out of my own remote server. How do I reset PF firewall automatically without issuing hard reboot?
