I understand there's a 1-year support warranty for creating tickets but I didn't know if the optimized pfSense OS build for the equipment gets continual updates or if that stops after a year because I can't find that in the
You can actually download them without a contract, you just need the Netgate ADI RCC-VE image if you bought the appliance from pfSense.
