custom config on LiveCD?
« on: February 19, 2018, 09:22:13 am »
I'm currently looking into the possibility of being able to boot a completely pre-configured pfsense box from only a liveCD. I found an older post from 2009 about this topic but it seemed like the only option was to put the config.xml onto a separate storage device like a floppy (lol) or usb drive. Ideally I would like the config.xml to be stored on the liveCD itself so that the only bootable device on the entire server is a CD/DVD. What do I need to do to "point" to the config.xml location if I put it on the liveCD?

See this https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=143108.0

How to build a live USB ? Dono. Last time I installed 'from media' was somewhere in 2010 I guess.

Consider installing - which stays a manual operation because it's menu driven, and then, when the GUI is up,  import a config file.

lol I guess its been a while since I have made a liveCD myself. I didn't even realize they discontinued it. My overall goal was to run from "read-only" media. I might be better off using a linux distro to achieve my goal.
