Reproducing iptables rules for IPP2P module found in the module documentation

In this new Firewall Builder Cookbook chapter I am using examples from the IPP2P documentation ( to demonstrate how Firewall Builder can be used to generate relatively complex iptables rules for mangle table. These rules match packets using Custom Service object, mark them using Tag Service objects and perform various actions based on marks.

Rules found in the documentation for the IPP2P module can be reproduced in Firewall Builder with little effort.
