Does this exist? (THE DUDE)



  • I'm coming from Mikrotik and switching everything over to PFSense as I'm learning more about PFSense and LOVEing everything.

    Is there a way to do a setup like mikrotiks "The dude" where you can setup a map showing all the info about your pfsense firewalls, and it pings them to see their uptime, and ping response?



  • Perhaps something like pfCenter?

    Quotes from Scott Ulrich's twitter posts:

    pfCenter is the product we are working on to allow administration of multiple pfSense boxen from one GUI / Appliance.

    pfCenter now supports tags! Later this summer we will change how large scale deployments of pfSense are managed.

  • That looks so sexy! Any way I can get a hold of the packages and use this? Or is it so new that its still being made? Looks pretty new.



  • If I'm right this package is only shared if you buy support.

    I don't think anything definite has been said. It's all a big mystery!  ;D
    However I do seem to recall reading that it may not be open source.

    To be honest if you have enough pfSense installs that you need a central monitoring system perhaps you should have a support contract.

    I'm an IT consultant and I'm always trying out new things for my clients and I have at least 5 that I can think of that can use this amazing software and at least two would be able and willing to pay for a support plan. I like to support a project that is living and quite well. I just need to run this software for a while and see how stable it is. So far it does not seem too stable, but I blame that on me making all sorts of changes and trying different situations with my box. I'm only on day 2 and I've had to power cycle the box at random for it becoming non-responsive a few times. :)
