Most "stable" build(s) for x86 non embedded.. pls post your experiences



  • Hi,

    Currently I'm testing pfsense 2.0 in production environment. I simply switch over to another router when problems emerge..

    But of course I'd like to replace that router/firewall in the long run.
    Also I need the QoS/Multiwan features of v2.

    It would be nice to know which build(s) you have the best experiences with.

    Thank you!

    Depending on the exact configuration you have, that can vary from day to day. A build that's stable for me, may not be stable for you, and vice versa.

    You'll just need to pick an update, test it thoroughly, and keep an eye on the commit log and forum.

    Although some people use it in production, that is still not generally recommended.

    Sat May 29 17:47:52 EDT 2010 snapshot is stable to me. Except that when a WAN link is lost then pf gets wrong – some PBR rules stop working and I must reset states manually.

    I have traffic shaper enabled, 4 WANs and many LANs, here is my config:

    .LANs ---- multi-LAN-single-WAN-router-no-NAT ---- single-LAN-multi-WAN-pfsense-no-NAT ---- PPPoE-routers-with-NAT --- Internet

    .vmware ESXi v.4 virtual machine with 5 virtual NICs.



  • Thank you very much!
