I would like 1 hour of your time to discuss PFSense….
I have many questions regarding my PFsene firewalls and want to discuss the topics of:
Firewall rules, Routing, Failover, Packages, IDS, etc…
I want to speak with someone that is deeply knowledgeable in all this and will consider compensation for time spent if the rate is reasonable.
Please reply here or message me.
I would normally post all my questions in the various groups, however, I have the need to get this all handled quickly and I am traveling often these days.
Not much time for waiting for replies and trying things out.
I would like to do a WebEx session or similar screen sharing with this person and have a discussion regarding these questions.
Let me know if you are interested.
Why don't you just call ESF? https://portal.pfsense.org/ or https://portal.pfsense.org/professional-services.php
I will consider it however, it's more than I need at this time.
I would rather give a highly knowledgeable individual a chance to spend some time with me and make some money.
I'm not opposed to contacting he SF.
But it will be my last resort even though I know it is the slamdunk way to get the support I need
What timezone are you in?
I can be available at most times
Thanks. Good for people to know. Currently on vacation in France so I am back in the hot seat in a week :)
Good to know.
If you're interested, while I wait can you provide me with some information about your background and experience with this firewall platform?
Feel free to communicate with me in private message
I confess a morbid curiosity why you're approaching Brian, rather than ESF.
Not that I mind you sending money to Brian, but he literally can't know what's coming, beyond the current 2.2 BETA.
And ESF employs the actual authors/developers of pfSense.
I agree that ESF would be far more knowledgeable and detailed however, I need tutorials over the phone with some basic and moderate techniques of configuration.
I think it will take about an hour, and won't cost $400.
At some point I may be willing to spend that money but right now I need to try this way and see how far I get
