I am fairly new to pfsense and I need to migrate our current pfsense firewall to a new hardware with intel NICs and AMD quad core CPU.
There are about 20-25VLANs that are set up on the current firewall and it has Realtek NICs.
When I do the migration, do i just:
- backup the config
- install the latest version of pfsense on the new firewall
- use notepad++ to change interface names from re0 > igb0, re0_VLAN302 > igb0_VLAN302, etc
- load the config on the new router ??
If someone could dumb things down for me and point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks a lot everyone!

That's how I've done it in the past and it worked well for me.
I would take care to NOT backup and restore additional packages, though. Reinstall them after the rest is working properly.
Thank you jahonix. I really do appreciate it.
