Scheduled Reboot

  • I saw some topics on this already but they were not clear.

    I basically want to reboot my pfSense firewall at 6PM every Saturday as an example.  Is there a single command for this?  I know SHUTDOWN -R will be part of it.  The purpose is due to the hardware locking up during, and we are waiting for budget to be approved on all hardware request; end of August.  For now, what will work is a reboot which I have been doing once a week manually.  Thank you.

  • Thanks you very much!
