    Default Thank You

    Seriously Untangle, thank you.

    I have production 2003 platforms in service because... reasons. It sucks but they are real.

    So to protect these aging platforms I've deployed PFSense routers on my hypervisors to create a bridged bubble, just an ACL set to limit access externally to RDP and from core servers to the workstations cannot hit any of the exposed services. It's not perfect, but it's better than running them naked.

    Why did I use PFSense? Because I can fit the thing in 1gb of RAM and 4GB of drive space.

    Meanwhile, I lost 6 hours figuring out how no navigate PFSense's nightmare it calls a UI to get the job done. Seriously, the firewall logging is actually WORSE than simply parsing a text file. I would have thought the near decade between the last time I actively used the platform and now would have improved it but nope...

    Instead I'm sitting here very much aware of just how spoiled I am by Untangle's UI. Old version or new, doesn't matter, light-years ahead of this PFMess.

    If only Untangle would run properly on these old Server 2012 release 1 servers... would have saved me half a day.

    PFSense is a lean mean routing/bridging machine... but dang is it a pain to configure!

    Eh, pfsense didn't have a great UI but it (and BSD in general) is incredibly stable, which is nice.

    Agreed, it's a powerful platform, and once it's setup and working it runs very fast, a very long time. But man... the logs suck.

    The logging sucks horribly.
