Hardware / Checkpoint T-120U (4200) LCD Screen
« on: December 07, 2017, 05:49:16 pm »
Good Evening,

I have several of these devices and hate to simply discard them as they are quite good appliances and will function well for pfsense use. That being said, I just loaded pfsense on one of them and it appears to run however, the LCD screen does not reflect any pfsense information.

I was wondering if anyone out there has been able to make it work. I found a few posts albeit a bit dated.

Any information, screenshots, suggestions, commentary, or otherwise are welcome.

Thank you,


General Questions / Need help - Boy Scout Camp Setup
« on: July 22, 2016, 12:01:08 pm »
Forum Members,

I am seeking your assistance in setting up pfsense for a Boy Scout camp. What I would like to do is:

•   Install and configure Squid – what are the best settings (I guess this is open to interpretation)
o   80G Hard Drive
o   2560M Memory
•   Block streaming services e.g. Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, etc.. Others?
•   Block video from playing in facebook (not necessarily block facebook though)
•   Block all access to Windows Update
•   Block all access to Apple updates
•   Block all access to download apps from Android and Apple devices
•   Block all access to Chrome updates and Google store
•   Eventually block porn/torrents/controversial non-Scout/children friendly sites (can be done in conjunction with the above mentioned or turned into a separate project and/or thread)

You may be wondering, why do I want to block so much, well, the answer is simple. We have a satellite connection with a maximum cap of 20G of transfer per month.

Basically, I just want the users/Scouts to be able to browse the web to complete their Merit Badge requirements and allow parents the ability to VPN to their corporate networks to get “some” work done.

Also, I would like to somehow track users traffic download/upload data e.g. Billy  (via IP/hostname/Mac, etc.?) downloaded/uploaded XXG of data. Is there something easy that can be configured for this reporting metric?

One more, we do have a Point-of-Sale machine in camp that process credit cards of which requires access to the internet. How do I provide priority to that computer of all others?

Thank you all in advance for your assistance!
