DON'T LIKE 2.3-RELEASE
« Reply #15 on: April 17, 2016, 01:57:57 am »
I DON'T LIKE IT!!!
1) I loved 2.2 interface. This interface takes more space on the screen. If i must use my laptop I cannot see all menus in one screen, I have to use the mouse like hell to scroll all the time. Dash board doesn't fit. Click Diagnostics and last 6 menus are not visible.
2) I used Postfix Forwarder to get some backup job's results, now I have to find another solution
3) Bandwidthd missing. How can I see now what computer is using the bandwidth? Squid Proxy Reports shows only small part of the traffic. 2 days ago I just identified an user with lot of UDP traffic.
4) PPTP, not safe but sometimes we need it.
I love pfSense, is a great product that solved many problems for me. I upgraded without fear every version, everything was so stable. Now is first time when I'm thinking to revert to previous version.
Regards

OK, but why did you update then?

The issue with IPv6 jokes is that almost no one understands them and no one is using them yet.

I updated it because had no problems for the last 2 years with any other updates so I didn't expected that big change.
Anyway, I just restored now the previous version after I couldn't open Lightsquid Report.
Regards. I am worried about future necessary upgrades.

Had to disable gateway monitoring on my Alix Board due to high CPU and I think it caused my box to crash last night.  I had it disabled before upgrading but I figured I would give it a try again; nope, I will just leave that off.  From looking at the upgrade notes it looks like I will have to invest in new hardware if support for NanoBSD is being dropped when 2.4 comes out. 


I like the new interface over all and the additional of DHCPv6/RA options for people that are using delegated prefixes from their ISP is very welcome.

Hi,

guys what the hell did you do with 2.3 release .... I'm using pfsense from the 1.x releases and never had problems with it . And I used advanced configurations and it was stable.

The BUI is total crap by default , I had to edit the css's to see everything normal way not scroll around like crazy all the time in the firewall rules.

Every day something is crashing from the interface tot the system all together. The sistem that I talking about had on 2.2.x months of up-time , now i'm happy if its working 2-3 days without a crash. The hardware is ok , checked and re-checked it.

Really every day I send you a crash report , and yes I will go back to 2.2.6 because 2.3 its a pain in the ass ...

perhaps you should post your specific issue's in the correct forum subsection instead of going "it crashes, thus it sucks"

That is great for you now, but of no use for the future. Whatever issue(s) you had cannot possibly be sorted out if we have no idea what were the detailed problems and symptoms that you had. When this happens again, post a new thread in the appropriate forum with details and there are people who are happy to help track down what happened. Then it benefits everyone as well as you.
As the Greek philosopher Isosceles used to say, "There are 3 sides to every triangle."

There's also a 99% chance the "crashes" you were getting are happening on 2.2.x as well, it just ignores all PHP warnings (as we should have done in release as well, that is changed for 2.3.1-REL and newer).

Can that be configurable for those who want the knowledge of such happenings?

If you change the source, sure. rc.php_ini_setup Or change the version to not include "RELEASE" in it.
