since 7 days I try to install and configure pfsense on a watchguard firebox x700.
First : Your tips are fk bad ! Problem : in serial console , boot hangs after "bootup complete" , no reaction.
I read in the forum SO MANY solutions - allways false or for a "microsoft" - worker not understandable.
Give you a solution , very simple :
Boot with "hyper-terminal" , using 9600 bd. On start.menu select "7 - boot with prompt"
on prompt type : set comconsole_speed=115200 and hit enter.
close and open again terminal-session , take 115200 bd , connect … just hit a key (enter) ... see "OK"
(youre online again) ... NOW type "boot" and enter -
it boots in menue to change , for ex. interface-Ips and so on.
Why is this not in documentation ???
And further more ... Now installed the firebox complete, everything ist working fine -
but , very slow. (2,1 mb , must be 14 mb download) squid in - and deinstalled, no changes.
Report with squidlight shows only first reports.
"System halt" and "reboot" are not functional , you have to switch off / on hardware.
anymore productive hints ?
It is covered in the docs:
Your instructions are good though. Are you booting from a hard drive? There isn't normally a menu that gives you an option to boot to a prompt if you're booting nanobsd from a cf card.
The reboot option should work but you will never be able to shutdown the box from software because the power supply is not atx compatible, it's not software controllable.
