Install new packages in pfsense 2.34



  • Hello to everybody.

    I am new in a pfsense

    I don't have full internet access and i want to install some packages like snort, squid in my server. I have been looking like doing it in version 2.34 but nothing appears for the same and is very different in the menu of the previous ones.

    How can i make my own repository?

    And another question:

    If i am behind a proxy server with user and domain authentication, hoy can i upgrade or install some package?

    Thank's.

    Well …
    Making a local repository needs some very advanced FreeBSD knowledge and totally out of scope here. Probably some patches have to be made to pfSense as well.
    pfSEnse is like your phone and tv set : if you want to install plugins or upgrade, it should be connected to the net.

    Focus on that : as per your proxy instructions, connect pfSense to the net. Better yet : put pfSense in front of the proxy.



  • Thanks for your reply. In the first case once without internet I was able to update it. Change the path of the repository in /usr/local/share/pfSense/pkg/repos/pfSense-repo.conf and download the entire repository from the internet and copy it to a local folder to which I point the pfsense and manage to update it. But it was in an earlier version of PFsense. Now it does not work for me.

    In the second case in previous versions there was an option in PFsense to be able to change the download path and existed to add a proxy if we were behind one. I can not put myself in front of the proxy because it is very above my company.

    Thank you

    I will continue testing until it works
