Packages / Re: ntopng update?

... The todo request on the bug tracker has been rejected.  There's an automatic quarterly update process whereby updates to all the ports (not just ntopng) are pulled across.  So I guess we'll have to wait for ntopng to be updated as part of that

Does anyone know the ETA on this?

I think this is the known race condition. Please see replies here or upgrade to 2.4.1(or .2?)

Firewalling / Re: ULA network sending DHCP requests to my WAN?

That looks to be coming from you ISP..

Its not unheard of to see dhcp requests on your wan.. since this could be a shared layer 2 for all the customers in the area.  So depending on how your isp is setup sure you could see such traffic.  It would be best and they can stop it from being sent to you.  So you have a MODEM, and you sure its not a router?  What is the make and model of it?  What IP is on your pfsense wan - is it public?

You for sure don't need to log it though ;)

Thanks for the reply Johnpoz,

The modem is indeed a modem/router combo (Arris brand) that is set to be in bridge mode so that I can use pfSense instead of their terrible user interface and feature set. The IP on the pfSense WAN is my public statically assigned IP

I'll go ahead and remove logging. Just got alarmed by all the alerts and started expecting something worse from within my own network.

Hi there,

Can there be a legitimate reason for the following spam? My pfsense router is directly connected to the ISP modem - and my internal network is

I've  been hearing and reading about pfSense for about 3 years, which started because the IT administrator at my school accepted my request to have a look at their firewalls and server setup out of sheer curiosity, where I saw their untangle firewall and started doing my own research with old hardware and virtualization.

My Asus RT-N66U followed by an Edgerouter Lite served me well, but about a month ago I took the plunge after a long power cut at home and installed esxi on a laptop I had laying around and wasn't using (Toshiba Tecra R950-11F) and put pfSense on it. It took some screwing around to understand VLANs on my managed switch and to run my laptop as a router with a single ethernet port but it all worked out in the end.

My setup:
Modem on Unifi Switch port 1
Laptop on switch port 2
Everything else including 3 unifi access points on the remaining ports

100/6 internet connection

The setup took care of a 30+ device LAN party thanks to some simple flexible traffic limiters. Had 7 different steam downloads going at one point without a hitch or any interference with browsing and other streaming.

I'm sure I'm not doing this in the most power efficient and sensible way, and the laptop I'm using is definitely overpowered for this sort of stuff, but I've always loved experimenting with these things.
