Downloading factory version fro FW-7551?



  • I purchased a Fw-7551 two years ago. I had a one year gold subscription that expired, so pretty sure I registered it.

    Now I believe I need to reload it and am looking at this page:
    https://portal.pfsense.org/docs/manuals/reference/reinstall-pfsense.html

    I see no "Active resources" to find the original image when I log in to my portal.

    Do I need to have an active subscription for this unit to download the factory image?

    If your account doesn't have access to the factory images you can use the CE install images on that without any issues. Even if it's got a CF at this point in time I'd use the serial memstick to perform a full install on there. An SSD would be a better fit but that will still work on CF.

    Primary reason being that NanoBSD is not available on pfSense 2.4 so you'll have a smoother upgrade path now if you make the switch when you're already planning for some downtime.
