DynFi is another router/firewall distribution based off of OPNsense and pfSense. It uses a modified FreeBSD, and has a ports overlay on top of FreeBSD ports. DynFi also has...

    Share your ARM64/AARCH64 experience for FreeBSD

    Mainly for setting up ARM 64-bit (ARM64/AARCH64) architecture systems which Single Board Computers (SBC's) or miniboards use. In my case, it's a Raspberry Pi 4. This case is under $10 and fits in a front shirt pocket. The MicroSD card didn't fit with the board into the hard case at first, so I...

    Any experience with DynFi firewall?

    I've been looking at the market for firewall appliances/distributions again, and stumbled upon DynFi firewall, which I have never heared before. Even more interesting, it is based and built upon FreeBSD, being itself a fork of OPNSense. It seems to be based in France, and the forums are not...

    Share your OpenBSD or OpenBSD derivative experience (for FreeBSD users)

    For FreeBSD users who have used OpenBSD, Fugulta or any OpenBSD derivative, what is your experience with it? I've never used them, though, I thought a discussion on them would provide useful insight. It would have been better if someone who has used it started a thread like this, but it hasn't...

    Those of you who have used GhostBSD please share your experience

    As you know GhostBSD offers a Live mode for testing, a really easy to use installer & a collection of apps installed by default which makes it really easy for FreeBSD newbies to try FreeBSD. I have a GhostBSD install and personally I am quite satisfied. The only thing that I don't like is the...

    Who uses DragonFly BSD?

    Hi, there's a thread about Hammer currently, which got me wondering. Who if anyone is using DragonFly and for what? I've been aware of it since I started using FreeBSD, but always considered it to be effectively still in development, bearing in mind its main goals of clustering and...
