    PFSense Installation Help

    not sure if this is the right section but it is concerning PFSense(Firewall). feel free to transfer this thread to the Installation forums.

    1) Can PFSense run on Linux? I found a PFSense for linux from Linux PFSense. (Issue is I want the original FreeBSD PFSense to be installed if ever possible)

    2) I read lots of threads saying they got PFSense

    3) Can someone post a "useful link" to PFSense installation or a HowTo

    Re: PFSense Installation Help

    PFSense is basically FreeBSD preconfigured to be a firewall/router with a web interface. It isn't a piece of software you add to an existing software, it is an operating system itself. If there is a linux version, it would be a completely different product using iptables instead of OpenBSD's packet filter. If I remember correctly, the installation was pretty straightforward, but if you need a tutorial, you can check their website.

    By the way, the link you posted doesn't seem to work.
