I run pfsense on an embedded j3455 atom setup in a 2U box in my rack. Ideally it would have been 1U but I decided on an iStar 214-mATX last minute. Runs pretty well as my firewall, router, dhcp, and dns appliance. Thinking about setting up a VM to test out the redundancy features.

Behind it, I have ~20 devices and probably ~20 more vms. I have thought about looking into 10gb for pfsense but I think its going to be a better use for just connecting esxi and storage devices + 1/2 PCs.

Haven't upgraded in a while come to think about it - missing anything good since 2.3.4-RELEASE?

All overclock, all the time

I took the plunge too since the support period is ended for my previous firewall(FVS336G). Its running on a PC Engines APU3C4 board(nothing ground braking but its enough for a 100/10 Mb internet) from a SD card. Machines on my network: 2 PC, 3 laptop, 2 media player, 3 NAS. Its used for gaming, general internet stuff and i host some game servers on one of the PC's.

I still need to keep UBlock running to disable adblock blockers. But otherwise, it seems to do a decent job on some of the more invested sites that my folks visit.

pfblocker is only as good as your lists. I have a bunch, but they do not block everything. Most update once or twice a month. The add blocker ones seem to work for most ads other than embedded video ads. Like on YouTube. They use to get blocked, but something has stopped it from working. Maybe my YouTube lists are not as complete as they use to be.

As for region/IP blocking. I have most of the world blocked. The only real issue I ran into was AWS servers in Ireland getting blocked for Plex. Made it so Plex apps could not remote connect to my plex server. Only fix was unblocking Ireland. IP's kept changing too many times to make whitelisting work.

2.4.4 is out but has some issues with some packages based around php version changes. Some plugins will break and even your instal could break. But the fix/workaround are pretty simple.

Here is a vid from Lawrence Systems talking about it.

@thread

OK I appear to have found the cause of my issues. I changed the network drivers in VirtualBox from Intel PRO/1000 to VirtIO, but the issue persisted. Before this, I had swapped out the Broadcom NIC for a Realtek one to try and hunt down the issue. I decided to swap back in the Broadcom NIC and - so far, touch wood - torrent connections seem to be holding up.

Given everything I have learned so far, it would appear that a certain combination of

- pfSense
- any VirtuaBox NIC driver apart from VirtIO
- the wrong Realtek NIC (wrong as in the onboard NIC is Realtek, the add-in card was causing issues)

can handle a small number of sockets (HTTP, NNTP, IRC etc) but torrents induce weird behaviour. The strange thing is that the VM running the torrent software isn't bridged onto the secondary NIC, it is in fact on a "Host-only network".

Hey guys. I have PFS running on a VM on win7 with a mobile router. The setup ran fine until today morning when it lost access to internet or so I thought.

I can ping and lookup dns for the site from pfsense web gui but can't browse to them from chrome or any other browser.

Any ideas?


Edit: Got the connectivity back. Now trying to set up a VPN server beween 2 pcs. Mine, acting as a server that has PfSense running on VBox that's connected to a mobile router. I've configured the OVPN and extracted the .exe to install on the other system but the connection does not happen. It always times out.

How or where do I look for to troubleshoot this?

I have been pretty happy with it. I followed this guide: https://www.linuxincluded.com/block-...ockerng-dnsbl/
Well actually the old guide he links to because I am not using the beta version.


There was some whitelisting and removal of some lists I did not care for to get everything the way I wanted but it was pretty easy to see what gets blocked in the logs and make any needed adjustments.
