Slow download for firmware pfsense



  • a recent time, I realized that the firmware download has become very slow, I realized that it ends up being downloaded less than 1 Mbps, my internet is 15Mbps, one after time I lowered the firmware at full speed of my internet. .

    My question is: download server changed? and when pfsense 2.3 we evaluated mirror ?

    another question out of context would be this:
    when pfsense is released, we will have available beta updates for people who like the dangerous life like me?



  • This forum is very slow today, too.



  • The snaps have been slow to download for me all week. I'm mentioned it in another post.



  • You were probably hitting our backup path, where we were having issues with a fiber link. That should be cleared up now.



  • Yup. Last snapshot was much much faster!



  • another question out of context would be this:
    when pfsense is released, we will have available beta updates for people who like the dangerous life like me?



  • @whitexp:

    Yes, we'll have 2.3.1 snapshots going shortly after release.



  • How will this work? Do we have an option to choose stable vs beta in the upgrade settings?



  • I would imagine that just as it is set now, the Firmware Branch setting (System > Updates > Update Settings) will likely need to be set to "Development" to get the pre-release builds. The final release build will likely have it defaulted to "Stable".
