Need opinions for package selection (pls move to /Packages forum…)
I need some opinions / guidance / advice on package selection.
I would like to be able to see my WAN traffic usage, and be able to block some websites. I don't care about a web proxy. Should I use:
Squidguard (plus Squid3 in transparent proxy)
My other current packages are:
I'm leaning towards pfBlockerNGv2, as it looks so much lighter than managing a proxy and a proxy filter, and blocking ads would be a great feature. The only thing Squid offers above pfBlockerNGv2 is the ClamAV protection. I have not been able to find enough screenshots/setup guides on pfBlockerNGv2, which is the reason I'm asking here.
woah wrong forum section I think .. sorry, admins.
pfBNG is not a content filter, but it does a good job of blocking full domains :-) I also think that you will find that ClamAV is not that useful of an Antivirus solution.
Thanks BB, I'm still leaning towards PfBNG. Content filtering is getting harder due to the HTTPS nature of things, so lists of domains + cron jobs from pfBNG will fit nicely. Yes I've heard the same about ClamAV not being very good, but hey, it's better than nothing, and it still helps in a multi-layered approach.
I'll throw pfBNG onto a test install of pfSense and go from there. Appreciate the info!
