Upgrading to 2.0 questions



  • I am currently using pfsense 1.2.3, and is thinking of upgrading to 2.0.

    However, I have the following questions needed to be answered:

    • can all settings of 1.2.3 be exported and imported to 2.0 without any problem? (my primary concern is the local user database for captive portal)
    • One of the reasons that I prefer 2.0 is multiple WANs. Can 1.2.3 handle more than 1 WAN? (plus load-balancing)


  • 1. Not sure, you could copy the database files from the 1.2.3 install to the 2.0 install so as to preserve the database
    2. Yes



  • 2. How so? I only see WAN and LAN and the rest are optional network interface. How can I change this optional network interface to accept PPPoE and such?



  • In 1.2.3 only the primary WAN interface can do PPoE secondaries (OPTs) can only do DHCP. 2.0 does not have this limitation.
