    • ossaudio(3) received several bug fixes and enhancements including but not limited to improved recording and full-duplex support.
    • audio(4) received several bug fixes and enhancements including but not limited to improved recording and full-duplex support.
    • make(1) was heavily modified, mostly to improve support for parallel build. Parallel builds now run commands in the same way the sequential builds do, and the output from commands is more readable. A large part of the source tree, xenocara, and quite a few ports now build correctly with make -j.
    • rcs tools improvements and bug fixes.
    • RTM_VERSION was increased so that all routing messages could be modified to include additional fields for upcoming networking features.
    • sendbug(1) has stricter comment parsing, to avoid mangling diffs.
    • umass(4) devices no longer detect bogus LUNs.
    • USB st(4) devices can now successfully disconnect.
    • More deviant umass devices accommodated.
    • svnd(4) devices now work on block devices.
    • disklabel(8) is now aware of NTFS partitions.
    • raidctl(8) now correctly handles trailing whitespace in configuration files.
    • mt(4) no longer triggers panics when processing the 'rewoffl' command.
    • raid(4) devices no longer hang when searching for components during boot.
    • sd(4) devices no longer receive spurious SYNCHRONIZE CACHE commands that confuse some hardware.
    • sd(4) no longer claim that SYNCHRONIZE CACHE commands are 16 bytes long when they are actually 10 bytes. Some devices took this too literally.
    • dhcpd(8) now always issues packets equal or larger than the minimum IP MTU.
    • disklabel(8) -E mode does not allow manual editing of the 'c' partition, which is always set to cover the entire disk.
    • disklabel(8) -E mode does not allow changing the cpg value of a partition.
    • disklabel(8) -E mode no longer permits assigning arbitrary sizes to FS_BOOT and FS_UNUSED partitions.
    • The bge(4) driver problems receiving jumbo frames have been resolved.
    • Many dangerous unsigned comparisons with -1 when checking the results of read and write calls have been eliminated.
    • The new M_ZERO flag for malloc(9) replaces many malloc+bzero/memset combinations, fixing a number of bugs in memory initialization and shrinking the kernel.
    • dhcpd(8) now correctly constructs response packets that use the overflow buffers to store options.
    • SCSI drivers are more reliable in MP machines due to better locking around command completion.
    • TCP responses to highly fragmented packets are now constructed without risking corruption of kernel memory.
    • Sockets now allow 4095 multicast group memberships.


  • Install/Upgrade process changes:
    • All platforms now have serial console support when installing.
    • Serial console speed is detected and appropriate /etc/ttys entries automatically created.
    • OpenBSD/vax now also has both kinds of install ISO CD images.
    • DNS server addresses are remembered if an install is restarted.
    • OpenBSD/sgi can now be installed using the glass console.


  • OpenBGPD 4.3:
    • Correctly handle prefixes which would cause a routing loop.
    • bgpctl's detailed RIB output shows additional attributes like extended communities or the cluster id list.


  • OpenNTPD 4.3:
    • Handle IP changes of clients more gracefully.
    • Log peer and sensor status to syslog if the majority of either is bad, or if a SIGINFO signal is received.
    • Allow offsetting of time sensors that have a systematic error.


  • OpenOSPFD 4.3:
    • Equal cost multipath support -- don't forget to set the right sysctls.
    • Parser and commandline options are now in sync with bgpd.


  • relayd 4.3:
    • hoststated(8)/hoststatectl(8) were renamed to relayd(8)/relayctl(8).
    • Improved configuration grammar for relayd.conf(5).
    • Allow to send SNMP traps via snmpd(8) when host states change.
    • Improved support for URL filtering and protocol actions.
    • Added support for UDP-based DNS relaying with request ID randomisation.
    • Various bug fixes, optimisations, and cleanups.
    • Improved reload support.


  • OpenSSH 4.8:
    • Added chroot(2) support for sshd(8), controlled by a new option "ChrootDirectory". Please refer to sshd_config(5) for details, and please use this feature carefully.
    • Linked sftp-server(8) into sshd(8). The internal sftp server is used when the command "internal-sftp" is specified in a Subsystem or ForceCommand declaration. When used with ChrootDirectory, the internal sftp server requires no special configuration of files inside the chroot environment. Please refer to sshd_config(5) for more information.
    • Added a protocol extension method "posix-rename@openssh.com" for sftp-server(8) to perform POSIX atomic rename() operations.
    • Removed the fixed limit of 100 file handles in sftp-server(8). The server will now dynamically allocate handles up to the number of available file descriptors.
    • ssh(1) will now skip generation of SSH protocol 1 ephemeral server keys when in inetd mode and protocol 2 connections are negotiated. This speeds up protocol 2 connections to inetd-mode servers that also allow Protocol 1.
    • Accept the PermitRootLogin directive in a sshd_config(5) Match block. Allows for, e.g. permitting root only from the local network.
    • Reworked sftp(1) argument splitting and escaping to be more internally consistent (i.e. between sftp commands) and more consistent with sh(1). Please note that this will change the interpretation of some quoted strings, especially those with embedded backslash escape sequences.
    • Support "Banner=none" in sshd_config(5) to disable sending of a pre-login banner (e.g. in a Match block).
    • ssh(1) ProxyCommands are now executed with $SHELL rather than /bin/sh.
    • ssh(1)'s ConnectTimeout option is now applied to both the TCP connection and the SSH banner exchange (previously it just covered the TCP connection). This allows callers of ssh(1) to better detect and deal with stuck servers that accept a TCP connection but don't progress the protocol, and also makes ConnectTimeout useful for connections via a ProxyCommand.
    • Many new regression tests, including interop tests against PuTTY's plink.
    • SSH2_MSG_UNIMPLEMENTED packets did not correctly reset the client keepalive logic, causing disconnections on servers that did not explicitly implement "keepalive@openssh.com".
    • ssh(1) used the obsolete SIG DNS RRtype for host keys in DNS, instead of the current standard RRSIG.
    • Correctly drain ACKs when a sftp(1) upload write fails midway, avoids a fatal(1) exit from what should be a recoverable condition.
    • Fixed packet size advertisements. Previously TCP and agent forwarding incorrectly advertised the channel window size as the packet size, causing fatal errors under some conditions.
    • Many more bugfixes. Please refer to the Release Notes.


  • Over 4,500 ports, minor robustness improvements in package tools:
    • i386: 4782 sparc64: 4613 alpha: 4233 sh: 2046
    • amd64: 4708 powerpc: 4634 sparc: 3159 m68k: 830
    • arm: 3377 hppa: 3971 m88k: 27 mips64: 1897
    • vax: 296
    • Highlights include:
    • Gnome 2.20.3.
    • GNUstep 1.14.2.
    • KDE 3.5.8.
    • Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.12.
    • Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.0.12.
    • MySQL 5.0.51a.
    • OpenMotif 2.3.0.
    • OpenOffice.org 2.3.1.
    • PostgreSQL 8.2.6.
    • Xfce 4.4.2.


  • As usual, steady improvements in manual pages and other documentation.


  • The system includes the following major components from outside suppliers:
    • Xenocara (based on X.Org 7.3 + patches, freetype 2.3.5, fontconfig 2.4.2, Mesa 7.0.2, xterm 232 and more)
    • Gcc 2.95.3 (+ patches) and 3.3.5 (+ patches)
    • Perl 5.8.8 (+ patches)
    • Our improved and secured version of Apache 1.3, with SSL/TLS and DSO support
    • OpenSSL 0.9.7j (+ patches)
    • Groff 1.15
    • Sendmail 8.14.1, with libmilter
    • Bind 9.4.2 (+ patches)
    • Lynx 2.8.5rel.4 with HTTPS and IPv6 support (+ patches)
    • Sudo 1.6.9p12
    • Ncurses 5.2
    • Latest KAME IPv6
    • Heimdal 0.7.2 (+ patches)
    • Arla 0.35.7
    • Binutils 2.15 (+ patches)

  I've just downloaded the install43.iso files for Sparc64 and i386 and a few packages. Throughput from 'ftp.openbsd.org' was quite good.
Tomorrow (5/1) I expect even the mirrors to be slow :)

The best known torrents have been updated, but at the moment there are not nearly sufficient seeders.

Very strange.. the torrents don't work with Transmission. Ktorrent is fine, though.

The Torrent-Tracker should get listed at the Website for a place to get the install sets and co!

Everybody could download the thins he/she wants via torrent and later update (in case you ever see a package update :D)

The transmission problem is really troubling, since transmissioncli is the best way to seed from OpenBSD servers in our data center. :(

Hopefully someone will look into it. I am always thrilled to seed 100% legal torrents ;)

It should work now. Transmission was sending the Host header with :80 at the end, but I think I solved that now.

-RewriteCond ${lowercase:%{HTTP_HOST}} ^(.+)$
+RewriteCond ${lowercase:%{HTTP_HOST}} ^([^:]*).*$

> Hopefully someone will look into it. I am always thrilled to seed 100% legal torrents ;)

Well, I finally figured it out, so go for it!

Bob's machine moved IP address a month ago and there are some people who can't seem to reach the new IP.

What does a traceroute tell you? Do you get to Shawcable?

It seems that if you are in JANET (the UK Academic Network) border routers filter outgoing trafic to 96.52.0.246 ;-)

Or it could be just a temporary thing for you, try again.

If everything fails, use my backup webform at https://kd85.com/notforsale.html

If you can't reach the new IP address, complain to your ISP with a traceroute. They or their upstream are almost certainly using an old bogon filter list. 96/8 was allocated in October 2006, anybody using this list _must_ track changes to it.

And if doesn't reach your ISP, please check your own firewall rules for the same problem :-)

Well I have a familiar problem.
I can visit some websites just via Tor.
From my FW directly it works perfectly but the clients in my LAN can't get a connection.

If you claim that some PF-Rules could bring up this issue please explain me this in detail because it seams I missed something.

my pf-conf:

ext = "pppoe0"
int = "xl0"
loop = "lo0"
intnet = "192.168.1.0/24"
router = "192.168.1.1"

inservicestcp = "{ ssh }"
set loginterface $ext
set optimization aggressive
set block-policy drop
scrub on $ext all fragment reassemble random-id

nat on $ext from $intnet to any -> $ext static-port

#block on $ext
block quick inet6
pass quick on $loop
pass out quick on $ext


Also I face the problem that I get diconnected every 24 hours by my provider. I can then surf from the Firewall but always have to do a pfctl -F all -f /etc/pf.conf to "reset" the FIrewall. I didn't found a solution for this during reading the manuals.

Btw: Yes the filtering WAS disabled by purpose!
But even with a quick pass in the clients wont be able to visit some websites event he FW can visit these sites without a problem.

Thanks for every hint!

Try to use : tcpdump -i pflog0 -e -vv -t -s 1600
There should read for which block rule the packet will hit.

Well I may understood something wrong but: Wich rule should have ANY effect? I don't filter anything.
It should just "route" and it doesn't. :-(

tcpdump -i pflog0 -e -vv -t -s 1600 shows nothing so far.

I can visit google but not undeadly, visiting slashdot but not some other websites (like windowsupdate.microsoft.com). And I don't know what I could have been made wrong with PF
Everything works if I do it on the router itself. :-(

Also the problems after 24hrs are not connected to any "pf rule" I think. I'm still happy for any hints!

Sebastian,

instead of complaining for as long as I can remember that pf is not working with kernel pppoe - put brackets around your external interface in the nat line. You were told this many times, even by pppoe(4) author and the use of brackets in pf.conf is well documented.

So there will not be any misunderstanding, your nat rule should be

nat on $ext from $intnet to any -> ($ext)


This will cause pf to reload the nat rule every time the IP address on your external interface changes. It works.

Read pppoe(4) (section 4 not section 8, i.e. "man 4 pppoe") about max-mss.

It has nothing to do with the max-mss
I used ifconfig to do it but I added your rules as well (it has no effect):

vr0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1440
lladdr
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX full-duplex)

Trying to visit f.e. http://marc.info/ from the client (fw sniffs the traffic):

As you can see: no response
It's the same for some, but not all nor the most websites.
undeadly and windowsupdate are two others. That are the only sites I am aware of where it happens.

and now I visit the site via lynx from the firewall:

  Whereabouts is some documentation for the IPv6 support in sppp(4)? The man page says that IPv4 only is supported.
