    I think you mean bfd not dfb correct me if I am wrong

    bfd is not a firewall it is a brute force detector and it works in conjuction with apf firewall

    add your ip to /etc/apf/allow_hosts.rules

    bfd is running as soon as you install it

    You can put your ip anywhere in the allow hosts file, but as posted above there should not be many.
