CLI installed pfsense packages not showing up in GUI



  • Hi All,
    I have installed squid package in my pfsense vm using the cli.
    Installation was successful though it is not showing in the UI.
    I used the command "pkg install squid-4.9" and the installation was successful.



  • Native FreeBSD 11.3 packages don't know nothing about pfSense. So how could they support it ?

    pfSense packages can be based on packages build for FreeBSD 11.3, and have then added to them the GUI part , and more code to use the right places.
    pfSense uses FreeBSD "with modifications".

    @RahulGarg said in CLI installed pfsense packages not showing up in GUI:

    I used the command "pkg install squid-4.9" and the installation was successful.

    then you should continue using the official FreeBSD command interface : the console or SSH access.
    But be ware : you didn't install it on a native FreeBSD 11.3, but on pfSense, based on FreeBSD - there is a difference.
