Vagrant Port Forwarding (8080 -> 80, 8443 -> 443) with pf on Mavericks/Yosemite

 This guide is a fork from this gist. Since Mavericks stopped using the deprecated ipfw (as of Mountain Lion), we’ll be using pf to allow port forwarding.
 1. Create the anchor file Create an anchor file under /etc/pf.anchors/com.vagrant with your redirection rule like:
important note the trailing whitespace is nessesary 
 rdr pass on lo0 inet proto tcp from any to any port 80 -> 127.0.0.1 port 8080 
rdr pass on lo0 inet proto tcp from any to any port 443 -> 127.0.0.1 port 8443 
rdr pass on en0 inet proto tcp from any to any port 80 -> 127.0.0.1 port 8080 
rdr pass on en0 inet proto tcp from any to any port 443 -> 127.0.0.1 port 8443
 2. Test the anchor file Parse and test your anchor file to make sure there are no errors: 

 sudo pfctl -vnf /etc/pf.anchors/com.vagrant 

3. Reference the anchor in pf.conf /etc/pf.conf is the main configuration file that pf loads at boot. We’ll need to load the anchor file we previously created: 

 rdr-anchor “com.vagrant” load anchor “com.vagrant” from “/etc/pf.anchors/com.vagrant" 

Make sure to add these entries to the appropriate spot, like: scrub-anchor "com.apple/*” nat-anchor “com.apple/*”

 rdr-anchor “com.apple/*”
 rdr-anchor “com.vagrant" 
dummynet-anchor "com.apple/*”
 anchor “com.apple/*” load anchor “com.apple” from “/etc/pf.anchors/com.apple”
 load anchor “com.vagrant” from “/etc/pf.anchors/com.vagrant" 

4. Load and enabling pf pf is enabled by default in Yosemite, so if the above doesn’t work, reload pf by running the following:

 sudo pfctl -ef /etc/pf.conf 


 Caution There is the possibility that pf.conf will be overriden with updates to the OS. It might be best to create your own pf config file and load them in additon to the main pf.conf to prevent this.
