I installed APF on CentOS 5. I tried to restart the apf and got the following errors:

/etc/apf/internals/internals.conf: line 59: /internals/rab.ports: No such file or directory
/etc/apf/internals/internals.conf: line 61: /internals/functions.apf: No such file or directory

Does the apf work properly despite the errors?

It would appear that you have a broken variable that is trying to access /etc/apf/internames/rab.ports, /etc/apf being the variable.

Check the configuration or restore from the original tar ball, if your lazy just find the variable pointing to rab.ports and functions.apf and change the line to the full path of these files.  Not the most elegant solution as the variable that is broken may be used elsewhere.

I wouldn't personally say it is going to work correctly while errors are being display.

It may pay to invest more time in learning iptables instead of this.
