Good Afternoon Everybody from Sunny Singapore! I have just deployed pfSense Community Edition version 2.4.2 firewall on my home desktop computer (Intel Pentium Dual Core E6300 @ 2.8 GHz, Intel DQ45CB Motherboard and 1 TB SATA Harddisk) not too long ago.
More recently, I have upgraded my home-based pfSense firewall appliance to Community Edition version 2.4.3. I have Snort Intrusion Detection System (IDS) installed as well. Questions are: (1) Is pfSense, coupled with Snort IDS, the best open source firewall/IDS/IPS in the world? (2) Is pfSense on par with commercial firewall appliances, including Cisco ASA, Cisco Sourcefire, Fortigate, SonicWall, etc? Please advise. Thank you. ===BEGIN SIGNATURE=== Turritopsis Dohrnii Teo En Ming's Academic Qualifications as at 30 Oct 2017  https://tdtemcerts.wordpress.com/  http://tdtemcerts.blogspot.sg/  https://www.scribd.com/user/270125049/Teo-En-Ming ===END SIGNATURE=== 25 May 2018 Friday 4:56 PM Singapore Time _______________________________________________ pfSense mailing list https://lists.pfsense.org/mailman/listinfo/list Support the project with Gold! https://pfsense.org/gold
