The package can be fully configured via a web interface and includes support for 2fa, openvpn, ipsec, carp and captive portal. In addition, it can apply packet filtering and has a traffic shaper. The developers have released OPNsense 22.7.6 and this version is accompanied by the following notes:

OPNsense 22.7.6 released

This update fixes CRL code handling with third party software and sandboxes the code to avoid dealing with boot-time issues ever again. However, due to the nature of the sandboxing no automatic fix can be made for the following case:

Creating and using an empty CRL in OpenVPN broke in 22.7.5 due to an ancient bug not populating the empty CRL in binary format: the side effect “correcting” this at runtime was removed. 22.7.6 will now correctly populate the binary format of the empty CRL upon creation in the config.xml as originally intended.The options to manually fix existing empty CRLs are as follows:

  • Remove the CRL from OpenVPN as it is unused anyway, or
  • Add a dummy certificate to it to populate the CRL properly, or
  • Add and remove a random existing certificate to populate an empty CRL.

These fixes can be carried out on older installation without a problem as well prior to upgrading to avoid OpenVPN from not working post-upgrade.

Here are the full patch notes:

  • system: fix inconsistent is_crl_internal() implementation
