Thanks a bunch. I had some filters in the routers that were using this bit, but the state tables may be the way that pfSense deals with it, meaning that I don't need to. I'll need to take a closer look at the old filters. I moved away from doing this in the routers due to size limitations and the difficult procedures required to backup then up every time any change to the configuration is made.
Sounds good to me, though I don't think it would require its own section. Feel free to start such threads on the bounty board.
Slightly disagree here.
I am a big fan of keeping things separated that don't belong together, this means I would opt for a separate "Training bounty" section in the forum.
It is way easier to find (especially for beginners stopping by) and it might catch some additional commercial user$.
What I'm missing is an advanced choice that not configure any default and automatic rules.
I want to set up all my rules and NAT by my self for all interfaces.
You can. Delete the default rule on LAN, enable Advanced Outbound NAT. The only exception would be PPTP and IPsec auto added rules, which will be optional in 2.0. You can remove two lines in filter.inc to remove those.
We were exceeding the number of MySQL connections the server allowed on this date. We've since upped it twice, and are about to move to a faster server that will allow us to up it even further without bogging down anything.
The snapshots are always about 2h old. The snapshotserver continuously builds new versions from the most current code from the cvs. There is no need to announce new versions every 2 hours. However I agree, that there should be some more "at the first glance" info about beta and release candidates though they are announced on the blog when they appear. We'll discuss it and offer some kind of solution. Thanks for the feedback.
