Software Features:

pfSense is a free, open source firewall and router platform based on FreeBSD that is functionally competitive with expensive, commercial firewalls. pfSense is a stateful packet filtering firewall, which also serves as a LAN or WAN router, VPN Appliance, DHCP Server, DNS Server, or can be configured for other applications and special purpose Appliances.   This next generation pfSense firewall features include:

  • Stateful packet filtering firewall or pure router
  • Routing policy per gateway and per-rule for multiple WAN, failover, load balancing
  • Transparent layer 2 firewall
  • Support for IPV6, NAT, BGP
  • Captive portal with MAC filtering, RADIUS support, etc
  • VPN: IPsec, OpenVPN, PPTP
  • Dynamic DNS client
  • DHCP Server and Relay functions
  • PPPoE Server
  • Reporting and monitoring features with real time information
  • Learn more about the features of pfSense
One common barrier to choosing and implementing open source software is the availability of prompt, professional support from knowledgeable individuals. Netgate and ESF eliminates that barrier for FreeBSD-based pfSense users by providing integrated support, paid consulting and development services to the open source community.
