Minor Annoyance



  • I have been using PFSense for a year or so and am tickled with how it performs. Many thanks.

    I do have a couple of things that have bothered me for some time. Nothing you can't get used to but . . .

    The reboot page should refresh to something like the system page. I can't tell you how many times I have restarted the router because I mistakenly refreshed the page or re-opened Firefox with saved session only to have the router restart again.

    This is really a trivial thing. I often set up a router without actually connecting the WAN port simply because I want to complete some things before I actually install it or I'm replacing a router and can't connect the WAN port. The startup scripts take considerable time waiting for a wan connection and then even though there is no wan connection will try to sync time etc. I'm sure I'm not the only one that does this and when you have multiple restarts, well it just annoys. Should have looked at the scripts before I started this.

    There is no logout for the GUI or timeout.

    Just commited a fix for this to 1.2.1 and 1.3.

    Addressed in 1.3.
