Any news about relayd?
Does anyone know whether there is any plan or any news about relayd ???
I understand the reasons of Netgate and the problems with openssl and libressl but maybe there is any news o info about its future..
No plans to bring it back. Definitely not in base.
The FreeBSD port was changed to use libressl, but we don't want to bring that in just for relayd.
Nearly all use cases of relayd are better served by haproxy, so there isn't much interest from anyone in putting time toward making a package for relayd, especially given its other problems and stagnant/nearly abandoned development.
Thanks @jimp ...
i understand it.... it is a pitty... Haproxy is a proxy, not an IP Load balancer so we cannot use it...
NAT based load labancing is not an option either... relayd worked so well!!!
Thanks again Jimp!
@pedreter I am also in this same boat. We used relayd for some time and it did it's job flawlessly. We tried using HAProxy, and it works somewhat for our purpose, but it seems to have some problems with websockets and other special links we have on our webserver, and so it breaks our web pages.
Does anyone know of any other solution that would be more like relayd?
i agree... relayd was the main reason to use PfSense... :-(
In Linux there is something similar: "Balance" and works very very well... i wilk check if there is a freebsd version... if so, maybe Netgate can consider it...
