Missing bit mask 31 in the interfaces



  • Just noticed that the bit mask 31 is missing from the interfaces page.

    I only noticed this because I'm using pfsense to act as a switch (no longer trusting cisco with their built in backdoors) with multiple nics and snort on each nic to restrict the traffic flows due to being continually hacked.

    I even noticed yesterday my bridged router was switching on the built in wireless which I have always configured as switched off as I dont fancy sitting next to a microwave transmitter.

    Running a /31 isn't possible on FreeBSD 8.x. Should work in pfSense 2.2 though as that will be based on FreeBSD 10.

  • ah ok, I'll keep an eye out for the 2.2 beta then. Thanks!
