Default SPAMD and pf

I have a question about SPAMD. Trying to set it up and the faq and man page use the following examples for your pf config:

from the spamd man page:
pass in on egress proto tcp from any to any port smtp \
             rdr-to port spamd

And from http://www.openbsd.org/faq/pf/tagging.html

pass in on $ext_if proto tcp to $www_server port 80 tag INET_DMZ
pass in on $ext_if proto tcp from <spamd> to port smtp \

   tag SPAMD rdr-to port 8025
Thing is with openbsd 5.1 I through they wanted us to use "divert-to" instead of "rdr-to".

Good catch. Documentation needs to be updated.

As for rdr-to and divert-to, a simple description of the differences can be found here:


If you like, you can give back to the project by submitting diffs for spamd(8) and the PF User's Guide.
