Can I install 3rd party programs on Pfsense?

  • Hello,

    I am just wandering if I can install 3rd party programs on pfsense. I am wanting to install nagios. Someone let me know if I can just get to console and install.


  • well i´d have to say dont go that way, if you want that sort of functionality on a firewall(never a good idea) go with say clarkconnect or some similar distro

    You should really install it (nagios and what not) on a dedicated box


  • You can install about everything you could on a normal FreeBSD install.
    If you want to know how you should install a normal FreeBSD.


    As fredde said: You should run as few services as possible on a firewall.
