Hello, new user to pfsense

  • Hello.

    I just found pf sense, and eager to get started.

    Downloaded the mem stick version and installing it now.

    Any tips or such for a first timer?

    Welcome to the forum!  :)

    Don't try to do everything at once.

    A lot of new users come from another firewall or router and they try to replicate all the functionality of that in one go. Then when things don't quite go to plan it can be much harder to find the problem.
    Start with the most basic setup you can and then, when you're happy with that, add more complex configuration one step at a time.
