[Solved] Get actual version with shell

  • Hello,

    I’m setting up a pfSense monitoring with Zabbix. With the command "pfSense-upgrade -cn | grep available | sed 's/^([0-9._]) ./\1/'", my server lifts me up
    if an update is available. Nevertheless, I would like to improve the thing by recovering the version currently installed.

    I'm sorry if the question has already been asked but I have not found a solution.

    Is there such a command on pfSense?


  • Hi,

    Something like this or borrow some code from this ?

    Also, document about console, option 12.

    There are a variety of ways...

    : cat /etc/version.patch 
    : pkg info pfSense

    (which you can refine via pkg query)

  • Hello,

    Sorry for this late response as a student and I'm not always at work.
    Thank you very much for your help because that's exactly what I was looking for.
