Feature request to support OpenFlow protocol



  • It would be best idea, to include OpenFlow protocol support into pfSense.
    In 2013 year, this question was asked in this forum [[url=https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=52156.msg382466]https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=52156.msg382466] and answer was “I'm considering making a version of pfSense for openflow”. And no other information about OpenFlow support in pfSense.
    AFAIK, software defined networking is very popular now in vendors solutions.
    Is there any news or plans to support SND in pfSense?



  • NetFlowd was the only thing what I was finding its way into pfSense as today.

    ADI Engineering is assembling and building the hardware for the Netgate and pfSense store and they
    are now selling one Switch that will be called Pica8 P-3297 TCAM 48 x 1G OpenFlow Switch and is for sale.

    That must be meaning anything in any direction or could be a hidden statement to the point your are
    right for. But, and this should also be said, it could be a try out, a start and/or a point where pfSense
    will be jumping in at one day.
