PfSense just works out of the box for me



  • juz wanna give a thumbs up to pfSense team.

    it is up and running on my old Dell PowerEdge R200, I just need to buy a quad port gigabit NIC card from ebay and I am good to go, all the ports and hardwares were detected out of the box without any configuration to the kernel needed.

    I know nuts about FreeBSD but I can configure everything easily using the pfSense web gui as the gui just works without being overly complicated and it don't breaks just becoz I click on something I shouldn't have and it works with all browsers too. The GUI is so good that I do not have to worry about dealing with the CLI, I can't say the same with Cisco routers though.

    I am using it as my company all in one device - router cum firewall cum traffic shaper cum WAN load balancer cum transparent proxy cache and web filter.

    it's free and I do not need to give a ton of money to Cisco and Juniper for their hardwares and licenses anymore.

    please keep up the great work and don't ever sell pfSense to Cisco.
