Off-Line Install & Config - Stalls/Delays/WebGUI Errors



  • System - Update - Update Settings is not happy if there is no available DNS.
    Makes it impossible to disable automatic dashboard check when configuring a system off-line.

    DNS Resolver startup may also be problematic when installing / configuring a new system.  Causing bootup and webGUI delays.



  • I've hit this problem many times myself on installs where WAN connections are not ready yet. Just spitballing but it'd be useful if there was a page we could visit (http://pfsense.localdomain/offline or something) that would temporarily disable certain services and checks e.g. disable Unbound, NTP, Update Checks, etc so that the rest of the GUI could be configured without freezing/timeouts.
