2.0 will it work normal for alix and home?
i read the other posts saying still not ready for production but can it atleast be used for home with just a few users coz the last time i installed it on alix, i never got the web gui but now its in alpha so considered asking before atempting.
It's still alpha, but getting better all the time.
It might work fine, it might not, it's still a bit rough in some places.
It also still has debugging turned on in the kernel so it will be slower than it might be otherwise.

I'm currently running the 2.0 nanobsd version on alix2D13, webgui is functional
the things i need to work r following so if its ok with 2.0 then ill shift over to that and help solve bugs etc and test it:
DHCP on LAN and WAN bridged to LAN
wireless using atheros card
Of those, most of those work OK. I think DynDNS still need some work for multi-wan, and I haven't tried UPnP.
I know of at least one redial fix for PPPoE that was found to be needed yesterday but I don't know if it was committed or not.
and lastly, can i save and restore the config from 1.2.3 to 2.0 or need to setup everything from scratch?
You can upgrade from 1.2.3 to 2.0, yes, but you can't go the other way, so be sure to keep backups before attempting an upgrade.

I don't mean to hijack this thread but whats the current status with pfsense and 802.11n wireless cards? Because my wireless card is a extended range 300MB/sec card and currently it only works as a 802.11g card.
We also have just a few users (about 5), but we do rely heavily on wireless. Need to have squid working, and caching videos, and much of the things that xbipin mentioned as well.
where can i get the update image files to 2.0 coz i cant find it at http://snapshots.pfsense.org/FreeBSD_RELENG_8_0/i386/pfSense_HEAD/updates/
Just be patient, the builds are being upgraded from ALPHA status to BETA status, so they're probably just hidden temporarily.
oh, so this would be much stable snapshots, thats great, ill wait for it to be ready.
I don't know about "much more stable" but it's heading that way.
It's still going to be BETA, not -RC or -RELEASE so there must still be a lot of caution involved.
i just upgraded to nanobsd 2.0 and following problems i faced
- on upgrade the traffic shaper rules dont import or dont exists anymore
- i need a 1 wan and 1 lan wizard rule for shaping but doesnt exists so i selected 1 wan and multi lan and selected 1 lan interface but it seems queues specific to upload r only created and not related to download as i see queues under WAN but nothing under LAN so download is not shaped.
- using wizard where can i see and fix those rules created for each type of traffic such as DNS, MRDP, they dont appear even in firewall floating rules?
- when i select multi wan and multi lan then it asks for number of wan interfaces and if i type 1 then still wizard doesnt go through
- cant find the reboot system option
sorry for this, actually i found things disappearing and then again appearing back on reboot, now i can see the reboot option
Those issues are worthy of a new thread if you have not started one already. I suggest you start a new topic with a relevant subject line for the traffic shaping issues.
