    OPNsense: Firewall software - https://opnsense.org
  • Rule IDs changing
  • Need recommendations on creating my first Prosumer home network
    For firewall/router, check out OPNsense and if you are CLI person, check out VyOS. However, OPNsense offers more firewalling features than VyOS. VyOS is a router with firewall capabilities. If you are familiar with Ubiquiti Edge routers, it is similar, but without UI.
  • Options for traffic/bandwidth monitoring?
    ntopng is the tool I use. My router (OPNsense) can run it on the router, but there's no reason you couldn't run it on another computer with a port mirror or dual NICs.
  • Any chance EGS might be able to get an ad provider that actually respects its content?
    Option four: (very complicated) set up your own home router using opnsense, set up adblocking on it, which will give your entire home network adblocking and not just your phone, and then tunnel your connection home using wireguard whenever you're out and about, which is a smart thing to be always doing anyway, especially on open wifi networks.

    May I introduce you to OPNsense? https://opnsense.org/
  • Help with Dual-Wan Home Setup
    I would personally use OPNsense using a Protectcli box (4 ports for 2 WAN, 1 LAN, and spare), a plain or PoE gigabit switch, and a set of TP-Link Omada access points. However, I am familiar with pfSense and OPNsense already, so adding a second WAN to my existing config wouldn't be all that difficult. OPNsense has good documentation on this. pfSense does too.
  • Virtualized pfsense with proxmox where proxmox is the host and it is on a vlan.
    reddit.com/r/PFSENSE | 2021-03-21
    Unsolicited suggestion, If you are just setting it up I would consider moving to OPNsense in the VM for this: Netgate-pfSense acts in bad faithn and this: More recent Netgate-pfSense shenanigans in addition to the chance the open source pfSense CE gets the back burner as netgate s moves to the closed source pfSense plus the recently announced.
