This will make more sense down the road when the package manager outgrows pfSense and we become a firewalling or server platform. :P

Can we?  No.   Can you?   Yes.

We'll happily take package submissions but the coreteam is too busy to create packages.

Use /etc/crontab.  We have a function call to update a file with a line.

For studying, use cvs.pfsense.com/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/tools/packages

FreeNAS should be pretty easy to integrate into pfSense as a pkg ... it seems a good way to use extra HD's  :-\

Different goals.   We do not plan on turning pfSense into a server platform just yet.  We need to focus on firewalling.

Currently our package manager uses:

  • XML
  • PHP
  • Shell Scripts
  • Much sweat and tears

No problem. already got the xml and shell scripting down, its the php part that I have no experience with. anyhow I dont thing It should be hard for me to learn since im a programmer.   ;)

I would love to have nano (the text editor)

Edit
Grrr..here I go and try to figure out how to compile from source code and all that it took was pkg_add -r nano && rehash
Thanks. I'm not so familiar with freebsd so I tend to do stuff backwards  ::)

know what i would love?   I'd love to see this "distro" remain lean and super good at being a firewall.

You want statistics and graphs? setup cacti somewhere on your network and use snmp to monitor your firewall.
You want a print server? set one up on your network somewhere.
You want dozens of other non-firewall/non-content filtering related things? Set them up.

For god sakes, let your firewall be what it is intended to be.... safe, fast, stable, and secure --- inside AND out.

While I dont think a full bind implementation is the greatest idea, especially considering the numerous security exploits via bind over the years, but a "light" version as a package would be really beneficial for those of us who have reverse dns delegated to us. In my particular case, I host all my forward dns with my domain registrar, while my datacenter provider has control of my IP space. They dont do any special reverse dns hosting for anyone, but will happily delegate it out.

Something as simple as having an extra field listed along side my virtual ips for "reverse dns response" or "reverse dns name" would be SO great. VIPS get cached by arp, the traffic flows to the firewall. I have my provider delegate rev-dns to my firewall wan ip and rev-dns responses could be easily served. Doesnt need to be a fancy full implementation of bind, but even the most rudimentary functionality would be a huge time saver for me.

my 2 cents.
