Client Export Utility install failed!



  • I restored a backup of the pfsense config and now the client export utility is gone and I can't install it anymore. Happens the same with some other packages but some others work.

    The first link works and there is the file now download on my pc.

    Should I install it manually somehow? How can I do that, or what would be the solution?
    Thank you very much in advance!

    Dude, upgrade your pfSense. End of story.

    https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Versions_of_pfSense_and_FreeBSD



  • Fair enough.

    Unfortunately, it won't let me. Whole other ballgame. Signature fail, even if I disable it and when I try manual upgrade, it hangs forever on "Waiting on host".

    Yeah. Backup config, re-image with a supported version, restore config. Done.



  • I'll have to eventually.

    How do I find out which type of pfSense I have? (I didn't install this one). Nano/full?

    On System Information, it says Platform: pfSense.

    When looking at the auto-upgrade URL, it shows updaters for nano-bsd, not that it would actually work to upgrade.

    How can I tell?

    That's full install. NanoBSD is removed with 2.4 altogether, do not touch.



  • Alright, thank you! I hope that's all I need to know for the fresh install.
