Rural user fuses EDGE and HughsNet with pfSense

September 12th, 2007 by Chris Buechler

From Broadband Reports, a story of a user utilizing pfSense’s multi-WAN and policy routing capabilities to make the most of his connections.

Note that right now you need some device terminating EDGE and outputting Ethernet to use it with pfSense. That will hopefully change by the end of the year.

Update on 1.2 release status to come later this week.

    The most entertaining thing there is the “dcdeadbeat” troll in the thread/comments below the writeup. He seems to think expensive products don’t get exploited/hacked, only free ones. Try to laugh before you cry though.

    That’s funny, I didn’t notice that until you mentioned it. He got the appropriate smack down from the sane people there.

    Sounds like he works for Sonicwall. :P

    Cheers to all the pfSense users there sticking up for the project (and other places around the web I find via Google Alerts, more often than not I need not fight any FUD that’s around, all you guys do it for us). :)
