Install mc on PfSense with error

  • Good afternoon.

    During mc installation, the following message:

    2.4.4-RELEASE-p3 (amd64)
    built on Wed May 15 18:53:44 EDT 2019

    To ignore this error set IGNORE_OSVERSION=yes

    Allow missmatch now?[Y/n]:

    And before this was not. On another server. Do not install from there?
    What do you advise?

    We advise to not install packages like that on a firewall.

    To add to that: Midnight Commander is perfectly capable of running on your local client and browsing the firewall filesystem over SSH/SCP (F9, l (L), SFTP Link, use sftp://root@<firewall ip addr>). There is no need to install it on the firewall and run the risk of breaking your firewall's package database by mixing pfSense and FreeBSD packages.

  • Big fan of WinSCP here, for file moving and editing from a client. Just enable SSH on FW.
