Complete noob with questions
Hi all, I am completely new to pfSense and I have some questions. Basically I want to use this with my home network so my first question is regarding content filtering. Does pfSense offer some form of content filtering and can I get a general overview of what its content filter is capable of. Secondly, Does pfSense have the ability to assign the same IP address to a specific MAC address, address reservation,? Can I apply content filter rules to specific IP or MAC addresses?
Thanks for any guidance.
A general yes, this is doable..
You will probably spend some time setting this up. So if you are easily frustrated… brace yourself :-)
But after setup - you will have a robust system.
Both stabil and very secure.. Not exposing any ports etc to they outside world :-)
I'm using Alix 2D13 with pfSense 2.1 myself.
I'm digging abit for you here..

DHCP with assigned MAC locking IPs is possible.
Address reservation - or better, use a DHCP with IP-pool. (i.e. 192.168.1.200 - 192.168.1.240) Then use the other IPs for permanent IP-MAC reservation.
Content filtering are some tips here;
Hope this helps :-)
