Download PFsense



  • I have a Soekris net4826. I want to download PFsense Openvpn. Can someone tell me how to do it.



  • You cannot use the current (just released) version 2.4 since it only runs on 64bit hardware and your AMD Geode CPU in the Soekris does only support 32bit software.
    You might want to try an older release from the 2.3 branch but I'm not sure if you'll find it usable with the very limited resources of a net4826. 128MB Ram max etc.
    OpenVPN throughput will be really limited. That hardware's really EOL.

    BTW: there are no different feature versions of pfSense like there are for DD-WRT.
    The only differences for installer images are full install (with VGA) or embedded with serial console.
    OpenVPN and other features are always included.

    dat doesn't matter I just need a new OS on the system. I had a FreeBSD first. But that doesn't work.
