File Manager Limit
« on: July 28, 2011, 11:15:27 pm »
Hi All-

I'm new to pfsense but I am already loving it. I have my captive portal set up and working but now I'm getting a little fancier. In developing my login page, I have come across some attachments that need to go with it. These exceeded the 256kb limit in the file manager. Is there a way to bypass or change this setting? Details would be much appreciated since I'm still somewhat new.

Thanks in advance!

If you upgrade to 2.0 it has a 1.00MB limit instead of the 256KB that 1.2.3 has.  Also the files get backed up into the configuration xml last I knew so the developers were trying to keep the size of the backup file smaller so they limited it.

Thanks for the fast replies! I'll try the upgrade because 1mb is definitly better. What was that you mentioned though about a scp connection?

Thanks again!!

secure connection protocol or something like that.
with winscp you move files between windowd and *nix like systems, like bsd linux etc
