What cool things can you do with PFsense?



  • I am arranging a data-party for 5-10 people every holyday and I have now gotten my claws into Pfsense. What cool things can I do with Pfsense that can be an advandidge at a lan?

    PS: Sry for my bad english.



  • Look at this list:
    http://pfsense.com/index.php?id=26

    Now think what you can do if you combine these features. A general answer to "what one can do with pfsense" is impossible.



  • Yea, I see. I have read this list, but I dont have much nowledge about these netword-expresions so I created this topic so that people could explain a little better to me. Thx



  • Please do not take offense to this blut response, but…

    We are not here to teach networking classes.

    My suggestion is for you to visit http://www.webopedia.com/ or http://www.answers.com and lookup anything you don't understand or visit network related sites.



  • Im not asking for a network class, Im just wondering what abilities PFsense has to my advandidge? And if someone could explain that in "english" I would be very glad.

    We have no idea what features you want and our feature list is rather long.  If you can't understand what's written in plain english at http://pfsense.com/index.php?id=26 then I'm not sure how much more detail anyone else can go into.

    Here's the simplest possible thing I can tell you (and if it sounds familiar, it should, it's on the front page of the pfsense website)

    –Bill
    pfSense is a open source firewall derived from the m0n0wall operating system platform with radically different goals such as using Packet Filter, FreeBSD 6.X (or DragonFly BSD when ALTQ and CARP is finished) ALTQ for excellent packet queueing and finally an integrated package management system for extending the environment with new features.
