Lldpd package - USD$100
BSD support was recently included in the quite well known lldpd.
This is a bounty for someone to package it up for pfsense, perhaps add some menu options (like which interfaces lldpd attaches itself too, attaching lldpd to net-snmp, lldp neighbor details, other controllable thingies etc) and include it in the packages repository
 Its in debian, openwrt, and is used widely at a number of large companies i have worked for and currently do work for including on custom router/switch firmwares

Interesting, I've used it (for testing only) on some Ubuntu - works quite well and has more features than the LLDPD inside FreeBSD.
Ah yes, it's BSD-licensed and thus more interesting to the BSD folks in general.
I think first thing would be to have a port which then allows pfSense to make a PBI more or less automativally , the port could be
first situated inside pfsense-tools but should be shipped upstream to FreeBSD ports where more people are likely to care about keeping
the base software updated.
Once this is done, making a pfSense package definition would be the second thing to do. :)
Its MIT licensed but interestingly was linux only until literally a week or so ago when bsd support was introduced. Packages in the various bsd ports systems will come along shortly no doubt.

Thanks, yes I've overlooked the license and only remembered MIT = BSD-friendly licensed ;)
Let's see if I'm able to hack the openlldpd port to make it work for lldpd (which I guess will lead to naming issues as FreeBSD already has a small (openlldp-derived?) LLDP daemon.
MIT licenses are the same chain of thought as the BSD licenses.
The lldpd i have mentioned is a very self contained piece of software so whipping up a port for it should be (afaik) easy enough.

Does openlldpd enough for this bounty?
