Spread the love

The package OPNsense is a firewall with extensive options . It is based on the FreeBSD operating system and is originally a fork of m0n0wall and pfSense. The package can be set up completely via a web interface and has support for 2fa, openvpn, ipsec, carp and captive portal, among others. In addition, it can apply packet filtering and has a traffic shaper. The developers have released OPNsense 21.1.5 with the following announcement:

OPNsense 21.1.5 released

This is mainly a security and reliability update. There are several FreeBSD security advisories and updates for third party tools such as curl. The historic bsdinstaller has been replaced by a scriptable alternative based on the readily available bsdinstall bundled with the base system. And, yes, this brings ZFS installer support into the upcoming 21.7 release.

On the development side the migration to Phalcon 4 framework is now underway and brings improved UI/API responsiveness. One of the remaining road map goals is the migration to PHP 7.4 which can be carried out after said framework update is complete and released.
