  • To find a rule number, just do a:
pfctl -s rules -vv
  • It will reflect all your firewall rules…

  • To show or flush sshlockout rules, just do a:
pfctl -t sshlockout -T <show|flush>
  • It will clear the lock…

  • To see the rules in their natural state:
pfctl -sa
  • Will list all your rules.

  • To KILL a table:
pfctl -t <tablename> -T kill
