Comment Re:Past pfSense user (Score 1) 39

Eh. As you said, I don't care if they're assholes. If it's better, I don't have a problem using it. My firewall blocks all incoming connections so I don't have a real complicated setup. Now, with the additional features of pfSense, I've been using its DNS server, Load Balancer, NTP, and DHCP services for my internal environment. I've checked out some of the stats and cast syslog to my internal syslog server but nothing much more than that.

Throwing OPNSense up as a test isn't going to be a big deal and who knows, it might actually be better (for what I do). :shrug:

I had to go read the About and the Why Fork section in the docs to see what was going on. Apparently some company bought much of pfSense, changed licenses, and branded some of it. The OPNsense folks, who were supporting it up to then, decided to fork the code.

I have been setting up my own firewall for about 20 years now I guess and recently, at the recommendation of a couple of friends, snagged pfSense for my new home VMWare environment. Worked for replacing the firewall and even better for the other services I was configuring on my own on my old gear. I may whip up a quick VM and load up OPNsense just to see what the fuss is about.

Comment Residential Fiber (Score 2) 111

City has laid fiber out to the curb and has made it available to residents. I never watch broadcast TV (been 4 years now) so I only had Comcast for high speed; 110 download/26 upload as of the last Speedtest. Honestly though, I've almost never had a problem with Comcast with an outage happening very very seldom in Virginia and Colorado and I've been on Comcast since the mid 90's. The main reason I'm switching is the price for 1G/1G fiber to the house is $50 a month vs the $130 a month for Comcast 'Blast'.
