Default pf block command help

i am trying to default deny all incoming. i was looking at fp faqs and "block in" command does not work. Is there something i should do before? It says block command not found. I am used to linux firewalls and this seems difficult.

You put the command in a FILE. Typically /etc/pf.conf. You then use pfctl(8) to load the FILE.

The syntax of a simple default deny is:

block in all

If that fails for you, post the contents of your pf.conf file, the pfctl command you used, and the specific error you get.
