New to PFSense, need a little help digging in. Any A-Z setup tutorials out there???



  • orry if this has been asked a zillion times.

    I've had a PFS install setup for the past six months. My goal was to bone up on it a bit each day an move away from my aging Zyxel USG. However, I'm struggling to get a handle on how to start configuring it for my network. I subscribed to the HTML docs, but I feel I need a bit more hand holding to get the basic flow of things. https://solitaire.onl/ https://9apps.ooo

    For example, on the Zyxel, everything (objects) can be named and you start from these objects and build upward to create rules/nat/routes etc. I'm trying to get how PFS approaches configuration.

    Are there any example configurations I could install to see and pick apart to better understand how a configured system looks? Are there any good tutorials that go through specific scenarios such as setting up a Dual Wan, Web servers, throttling users, etc.)?

    Again sorry for being so basic. I'm not a networking professional just a geeky dad that doesn't know any better.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm now going to post to the /chainsaws sub to better understand how to use this 1000cc chainsaw I bought on a whim... ;)

    Edit: Thank you everyone for such great resources! Really appreciate your help!
