Sonicwall to pfsense - conversion tool



  • Hi All

    Im wondering if the community has a conversion tool that can take a sonicwall export or report and convert it to a pfsense configuration.

    Ive searched high and low but cannot see or find such a tool, if it exists.

    Thanks in advance

    No tool available. We do offer a professional service, converting from 3rd party vendors to pfSense. https://www.pfsense.org/our-services/

    What is your end goal here. I am just curious as I have Sonicwall and pfsense in place.

    Switch to pfSense? :)



  • The only conversion tool I know of is your brain and a knowledge of how firewalls work.



  • Thanks Ivor I will check out your services. Which support package would I need to gain the conversion support?

    End goal is to retire SonicWall boxes and replace with Pfsense boxes. I was looking for a migration or conversion tool which would reduce the time taken in
    parsing out all the sonicwall settings into a pfsense sense compatible format. When you have many sonicwalls to many pfsense, automation will help ALOT.

    Thanks guys for the responses.

    Router conversions are under our professional services, separate from support subscriptions. You can contact our professional services for more info and a webex with our engineers. If you purchase our hardware and professional services, we can do the conversion for you and ship the preconfigured routers - as a turnkey solution. All you need to do is to plug them at your site. :)



  • Thanks Ivor

    We have purchase x2 netgate pfsense appliances and had a customer purchase a third. We did not however purchase support.

    I will take a look at the commercial support offerings and make contact.

    Thanks again

    If you purchased appliances from pfSense store, those come preinstalled with pfSense and include support. If you purchase appliances from Netgate store, those are preinstalled with CentOS and no pfSense support. Contact us anyway, either support or professional services and someone will be able to assist you!
