Manually loading packages



  • All,

    I am a noob using pfSense and freebsd, so please be gentle.

    I have a pfSense installation running version 2.4.1.  This system does not have access to the internet.  :(

    I would like to install freeradius but am struggling.  I have managed to download the .pbi (freeradius-2.2.5_3-i386.pbi) and get it copied into pfSense machine into the /tmp directory.  But I cannot seem to find a way to install this.

    Any help would be greatly apprciated.

    Thanks

    pfSense is using FreeBSD is it's base OS.
    But differences exists : one of them is the package handling.

    Wait …
    Your posting on a public forum, right ?
    Bring your system along the next time - update - upgrade - done.

    This situation was mentioned some time ago. I guess it was completely abandoned.
    I guess you have to connect  it at least ones ….

    edit : wait !
    I guess it possible - it probably a manual job, not or very badly documented. Get out of the noob phase and you'll be fine.
    I asked the world for advise ( pfsense install package without internet connection ) - it came back with https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=130966.0
