Unable to open /dev/pf device inside the jail

Hubert Hauser
I'm trying to set TransPort setting in the torproxy jail but when I try
to start Tor inside the jail I'm giving errors:

|root@torproxy:~ # service tor restart Stopping tor. Waiting for PIDS:

I've created this jail using ezjail-admin tool. Could anyone tell me why
I'm unable to change host pf settings and how can I do it inside the jail?

Assuming that you've got a vnet jail that is possible, but you'll need
to tweak your devfs configuration to give the jail the pf device node.

I edited /etc/defaults/devfs.rules to add 'add path pf unhide' to the
'[devfsrules_jail=4]' section.
It's probably cleaner to do that in /etc/devfs.rules though.
