Having trouble getting LCDProc to work on Lanner FW-7568A



  • Hello,

    Using PFSense ver 2.3.6-DEVELOPMENT and installed package LCDProc ver 0.10.5 per attached picture.

    Have done the following including numerous reboots of the firewall, power cycle, etc.

    Install LCDProc - FW-7568A
    *
    Goto System>Package Manager>Available Packages>
    *
    Search for LCDProc and install it
    *
    After install go to Services>and select LCDProc
    *
    ComPort: Parallel port 1 (/dev/lpt0) 
    *
    Display Size: 2 Rows 20 Colums   
    *
    Driver: Watchguard Firebox with SDEC 
    *
    This option was not available in current version: "Connection Type: Serial LPT wiring "
    *
    Refresh Frequency: 5 Seconds  … 
    *
    Dont forget to enable some screens in the Screens tab.
    *
    Go to System Tab > Advanced > Networking Tab then look for "Prefer IPv4 over IPv6" click checked then save it.
    *
    Reboot then fully functional on LCD
    *
    Diagnostics -> Edit File -> "/usr/local/pkg/lcdproc.inc"
    *
            change "localhost" for "127.0.0.1" to fix bug
    *
                (where LCD screen only showed "Cli:0 and A=Scr:0" or "-> options")

    All I see on the LCD is top row of squares and it's backlit which is what it always has done.

    Thoughts?  Thanks!

  • @oklord Does anyone have any thoughts on how to use the LCD on the Lanner Firewall with PFSense 2.44
