SG-4860 : pfSense 2.4.3 System->Advanced->Networking : recommended settings?



  • Concerning a SG-4860 running pfSense 2.4.3, where may I find the "Recommended" configuration settings for System->Advanced->Networking?  For example, shouldn't "Hardware Checksum Offloading" and "Hardware TCP Segmentation Offloading" be disabled rather than defaulting to "enabled"?


  • Rebel Alliance Developer Netgate

    Hardware Checksum Offloading is enabled by default (box unchecked in the GUI)
    Hardware TCP Segmentation Offloading is disabled by default (box checked in the GUI)
    Hardware Large Receive Offloading is disabled by default (box checked in the GUI)

    Those are the settings you want for a firewall. If you read the help text on the page, and at https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Advanced_Setup#Networking then you'll see why.
