Is it possible to install packages without internet access ?

  • I use pfSense in a closed environment without Internet Access.
    Is there a way to download a package (xml files and freebsd package) and to upload it on my pfsense firewalls ?

    Thanks in advance.


  • Yes there is but some work is needed.

    Getting the files:
    install git and use git clone git:// my_packages_clone to get the package tree or install the package on another pfSense with internet

    To read and copy:
    pkg_config.7.xml and the package folder for info
    Create a local repository of the needed packages on a webserver can be more future prove
