I've searched around a bit for this, so I think I know the answer already but i wanted to ask here before i give up.

As the title states, can one buy the current version of the pfSense book as a one time purchase?

The Gold thing is really an excellent idea, to have a continuously updated version of the book since the product changes.

But, it's a long book to read on a computer screen.

I understand printing is expensive and that already happened once, but is there some sort of eBook format that could be sold for kindles or something?

I'd really like to read the book but I've never read a book on my computer for a reason...

We don't have a one-time purchase option at the moment. If you have a gold subscription you can download the book in PDF, ePub, or MOBI format in addition to the online HTML copy.

There is a book-only purchase option without the rest of gold but that is limited to only the HTML format, you can't download the e-reader formats using that type of account.

We edit the book constantly for new versions, options, etc. It is a living document, as pfSense is a living project. Any single purchase would be almost instantly outdated.

Thanks! I had seen the book only copy and just assumed that it was the same if I bought Gold.

Hi,

I just bought book-only support by paypal. The transaction is done with the message of my paypal email. But the payment page indicates that "there are no confirmed payments for your account". Could you please check this?
Thanks!
