I’ve just finished up the conversion of Captive Portal from IPFW to PF. This basically leaves us dependent on IPFW for just Traffic Shaping now (ALTQ). However Bill has created a patch against PF that allows advanced branching to anchored tags that will allow us to still have our Traffic Shaper logic seperate from the firewall rules.
So in a nutshell the GUI won’t be changing but the backend will be changing a great deal! Prepare for a interesting weekend.
