I've a problem with the "pf" Packet Filter on Mac OS X 10.7.5. If I using rules with "route-to" and any of this rules

match's this leads to a Kernel Panic and the System reboots. Has anybody expirience with this behaviour or eaqul




Shortly a User Story to understand what I'am doing:


There are two dedicated Networks with two Routers (networks holding the Internet connections).

I want to make a load balancing over both lines for that "pf" offers the possiblity to using a rule with "route-to" and a

"round-robin" packet distribution.


Example Rule:


pass in on en0 route-to { (vlan0, (vlan1 } round-robin from (en0:network) to !


If now this rule matches the system reboot's with a Kernel Panic. I'am sure this is still a Bug in the operating System self.
