[Bug 212339] "Filtering Bridges" article obsolete

            Bug ID: 212339
           Summary: "Filtering Bridges" article obsolete
           Product: Documentation
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: Documentation
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]

The article "Filtering Bridges" at
  https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/articles/filtering-bridges/article.html
contains apparently incorrect information in sections 2.2 and 4. that would
surely prevent any reader from succeeding with this software. I believe the
information provided is for a long ago version of FreeBSD. The correct
information is in the if_bridge(4) man page in 10.2 and no doubt earlier
releases. The article has a last revised date in April 2015, which misleads the
reader into thinking the information is reasonably current.

In section 2.2 "bridge" should be "if_bridge". In section 4 the various sysctl
commands are no longer valid. The current version of the software uses ifconfig
commands to control the bridge. See if_bridge(4) for details.

Perhaps all that need be done is to place a note under the title that the
material is obsolete and available for historical purposes only.

--- Comment #1 from [hidden email] ---
Scratch my suggestion to mark the article as obsolete - other than sections 2.2
and 4 the material is extremely useful and I was unable to obtain similar
information anywhere else.
