Fan Speed Control



  • Hi,

    I have a Watchguard x750e and trying to get the fan control to work

    I followed this guide https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=66129.0

    When i reboot the fans to get quieter but when you get the beeps to say system is ready the fans speed back up.  If I go into the shell and type cd /conf
    ./WGXepc -f 10 they go quiet again.

    Any idea what I am doing wrong?

    Thanks

    Kimbie



  • You must install the package "Shellcmd",
    and after installation , you add  this command in Shellcmd :

    /conf/WGXepc -f 10

    This command lower the fan speed during bootup,
    and keeps the fans at lower speed.

    I tried that and doesn't work either.  I know that command works as if i SSH to the shell and type that it works



  • Do you use 32bit or 64bit ?
    If you use pfSense 64Bit, you must use the 64Bit version of WGXepc -> WGXepc64

    After installing the right version of WGXepc,
    you must change the read/write permissions with this command :

    chmod 0755 /conf/WGXepc  (for 32Bit version)
    chmod 0755 /conf/WGXepc64  (for 64bit version)

    I always add the WGXepc package and chmod command via :
    Diagnostics -> command prompt in the Web UI
