openbsd has as (one of) its design gooals to be a very secure system,
out-of-the-box. which is a good thing for a firewall.
on the other hand, if you can not find a tutorial for configuring it
according to your wishes, is worthless.
perhaps a good idea would be to find the tutorial first and choose the
os after that?
