Caswell/Portwell LCD support in 2.4.4 ?



  • I read somewhere that pfSense 2.4.4 was LCDProc was supposed to have support for the LCD that comes on Caswell/Portwell CAR firewall appliances. These boxes are used by folks like Smoothwall (UTM-300 etc) and others. After loading 2.4.4 from scratch on my Smoothwall I don't see anything in the LCDProc settings specifically for the Caswell/Portwell LCD.

    Do I need to install the LCD manually still or is there a specific set of settings I need to use under 2.4.4 of pfSense and whatever version of LCDproc, and has anyone been able to do this that they can give me some tips on how to do it on 2.4.4?

    Thanks,

    The driver itself has been upstreamed and is now in the FreeBSD package so is included. But the GUI components have not been updated to include it (yet) so it must still be started manually at this time.
