pfqueue.conf - pfqueue configuration file


/etc/pfqueue.conf or ~/.pfqueue


pfqueue can be configured storing its option in configuration files. At startup, if /etc/pfqueue.conf is present it is read and options are set accordingly; then, if a .pfqueue file is present in user's home directory, it is read and options are set accord‐ ingly, overriding those stored in /etc/pfqueue.conf. Note that the resulting settings are overridden by command line options.


An option can be set using the "option=value" syntax. Any line starting with a hash sign ("#") will be discarded.
