Hardware / pfSense + Ubiquiti Unifi switch + UAP-AC-Pro APs
« on: March 02, 2018, 01:30:29 am »
I've read a few threads on this forum and the UBNT one. Currently have a Qotom i5 box running pfSense and very happy with pfsense so don't want to lose that. Running pfBlockerng and Suricata/Snort and when doing a torrent download at close to 200mbit the CPU hovers at only around 10-15%.

But looking to replace my current netgear switch (GS110TP) and a variety of wireless routers used as pure access-points with a Unifi switch and maybe 3 x UAP-AC-Pro APs. Just looking for people's experience with this and whether they feel they are still getting sufficient benefits from the "single pane of glass" type system when not using a USG gateway. This is for a home environment. I have a QNAP on 24/7 that I've been able to install the Unifi controller as docker container container.

Not currently doing VLANs but I plan to do some simple stuff and find the simplicity of the Unifi interface appealing, but wondering if keeping pfSense as the firewall/router limits that simplicity.

Anyway, any experiences with a smilar setup would be most welcome.....

2.4 Development Snapshots / Development snapshots changelog information
« on: February 12, 2018, 03:03:54 am »
Home user, currently running the development snapshots. Where can I see what are the changes in the nightly builds? Would be informative and also useful as a learning experience to see what changes have been made. Even better would be to have this info available in the actual GUI either under the System Information>Version widget, or via an RSS feed you could put in an RSS widget. Maybe this is already possible and I'm just not seeing it. Thanks.

General Questions / Monitoring ISP uptime
« on: November 03, 2017, 01:32:04 am »

I have my pfSense on a Qotom unit setup as follows:

ISP > fiber > ISP modem > Ethernet > Qotom/pfSense

I then have.....

System > Routing > Gateways > Edit > Monitoring IP set to ping Google DNS with probe interval 1 second.

All of this works fine and correctly shows me when the ISP line is down etc.

But I would like to be able to see some kind of graph or other information showing me how frequently and for how long the line goes down over the last few days. Is there something inbuilt that shows this? Or how else to accomplish?


2.4 Development Snapshots / 2.4 RC vs 2.4.1 - features, experience etc
« on: September 24, 2017, 12:39:33 pm »

Currently running 2.4 RC on my Qotom i5 box, home setup. Was just wondering if anyone could share their experience of moving from 2.4 RC to the 2.4.1 betas. I'm interested in what new features there might be, as well as overall reliability. I was running 2.4 when it was in beta stage and was quite happy, just wondering if I should move to 2.4.1 betas or not.
