Port OpenBSD PF firewall to Sophos UTM

Hi Folks,

I have been handed an environment that includes an OpenBSD PF firewall that needs to be ported to a hardware firewall.  

I'm looking for some tips on getting this done.

I realize this could be a very wide open question, but where is it best to start?  I have used different Sonicwall firewalls, but never OpenBSD.  Where do I look for the proper rules to recreate in the Sophos?  

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

If you have block-by-default policy it is pretty straightforward to recover logic of ruleset and repeat it in other firewall.
In opposite case i would suggest by analyzing traffic for some time and trying to figure out which traffic is which business application (i.e. start from nothing)

Is there a place I can look at the rules in the current system and attempt to recreate them?

There is a connection between the office and the datacanter that I need to recreate as well.

I'm not familiar with OpenBSD so I could use a little assistance in finding everything.

Thanks.

Sophos is not free, you can ask them to supply scripts to import configuration.
