Re: [pfSense-discussion] noob question

There is no logout (AFAIK)
You can't install plain old 3rd party apps, you have you install a pfSense
package. Only some software is available as pfSense packages, and many of
them are beta or alpha. But you can make your own packages, something I
haven't personally tried yet.
To browse the packages available, log in and go to System - Packages.
To install the package you want, click the + button to the right of the
package listing.

I hope that helps.

it uses basic authentication, so you have to close browser (FYI, it's a
long running bug/issue with firefox/mozilla to be able to forget the
password and thus logout). I guess somebody might like to rewrite it to
use cookies and thus have a logout function if they really cared?

it's freebsd based so you can use 'ports'. I installed munin from ports
and it works pretty well.


[pfSense-discussion] ipsec tunnels should allow multiple subnet selectors

2007-09-19 Thread ryn jackson
just a thought. pfsense should be able to support multiple subnets/selectors in 
an ipsec tunnel. after all these aren't linksys gateways.

i always use a different vlan/subnet for voip traffic and when i connect sites 
together (either telecommuter or branch office) i usually set up a ipsec tunnel 
that will handle all the subnets that need to talk to each other.
so rather than assuming that we only want to connect to one remote subnet at a 
site and that that site only wants to see one of mine, i'd like to set them up 
in one tunnel.
also, can traffic shaping work on traffic going through a tunnel? just wanted 
to know if traffic shaping rules were applied before or after encryption.

also, any plans to implement ip compression in tunnels?

2007-09-19 Thread ryn jackson
just wanted to know if there were any plans to implement an smtp proxy package 
that could do spam filtering and email greylisting/blacklisting. act as a 
tarpit etc.

also possibly clamav as well?

could you not install these from freebsd ports?

Zied,

To answer your first questions sarcastically, yes, the red X in the upper
right hand corner.  But really, no, I do not believe there is a logout
button from the web interface.

Secondly, when you install pfSense to hard disk / flash disk / etc and are
not running off of the bootable CD w/ floppy storage configuration, you have
an extra menu packages which lets you install squid, bandwidthd, snort and
a few other very nice tools.

Hope that helps.

Curtis

no, FreeBSD ports/packages do not work with pfSense, you need to configure
each package to the system

This functionality has already been written and will be in a future
release after 1.2.
