Could someone explain to me the difference between the following:
Configuring a firewall filter under "set firewall filter"
Configuring a firewall filter under "set firewall family inet filter"
As the name suggests, "set firewall filter <name>" is for v4(inet) alone where as "set firewall family <any, bridge, ccc, evpn, inet, inet6,mpls,vpls>" give you wide range of family options.

Yes, I jumped the gun a little asking the question as I just found the answer out.
Family inet filter and firewall filter are the equivelant for IPv4.
