Pf.conf -> XML?



  • I'm maintaining an OpenBSD firewall, but there's some concern at the moment that if I get hit by a truck, nobody else here knows enough about *BSD to keep it going. I've been looking at pfSense, and it looks pretty fantastic, so I'm thinking that moving our firewall to pfSense would be a reasonable plan.

    However, I have a pretty large and heavily tested pf.conf already, is there an easy way to translate this into the XML format that pfSense wants for its configuration, so I don't have to manually migrate all the rules?



  • Unfortunately there are no pf.conf -> pfSense mirgration tools available at this time.

    Once your on pfSense it is quite easy to go back to a pf.conf.

    Sorry !!

    Need a job?  Ever considered that the truck might be someone hiring? :)
