fwknop FreeBSD ready. Is it available on pfsense



  • Is the latest pfsense support fwknop?

    I wonder about it as I just read in an article that fwknop supports FreeBSD and it would be an awesome to be able to use it with pfsense:

    The fwknop project supports four different firewalls: iptables, firewalld, PF, and ipfw across Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X.

    I checked it on fwknop’s site too confirming its availability!

    If not yet, can I know when will it be available if it is even considered to be part of pfsense or does actually pfsense already support such feature except with different name I just could not find?

    It's not a package we make available. I don't know that anyone is working on it, either. With VPNs being easy and ubiquitous, there is little need for anything as crude as port knocking these days.
