In production with pfSense 2.0 RC1 x86



  • Hello,
        after 3 months of testing and studying pfSense, as planned, today we went in production with pfSense 2.0 RC1 x86… two machines in fault tolerance (2 x Pentium D, SSD HD and Intel DP Nics), 5 interfaces per machine (including a dedicated CARP), and what I am most proud of, a nice LCD panel to see the status of the machine (see pic attached, even if I am still searching a decent case)... of course we had a nice surprise today (also Chris), but things went great…

    What to say? Thanks to Jim and Chris for their support (and to the support team), I hope things will go great as they were until now...

    Regards,
    Michele



  • Nice. Those stats on the LCD are sweet!



  • I'm curious about your setup if you're able to share, love the LCD heads up display.

    Easy… I was using a package called LCDProc... the problem is that package is not updated and I had to compile the latest version in order to get the specific driver for my LCD panel... then I had to update the package to let choose/use the new driver...

    finally I found out that the package didn't care about the size of the LCD panel, but was using only a 16x2 fixed layout... so I worked again a bit on the package and made the screen size used (my panel is 20x4 chars)

    Now every time I update pfSense I need to update manually the package uploading the correct files, until the changes I made will be merged in the "distribution release" of pfSense...
