pfSense sucks


Never use pfSense as the Gateway in production environment, sometimes you have to reboot the whole OS to fix some issues, but the reboot means serious downtime especially when there are some VPN connections between different colocations.

Just buy some professional firewall network devices...

    You have no idea what you're talking about. It's very, very rare that anyone encounters any issue that requires a reboot. Nearly all the support customers who come to us with issues that are "fixed" by a reboot, actually end up being problems that have nothing at all to do with the reboot or even the firewall (such as IP conflicts, other general network issues, among other possibilities).

    We wouldn't be the most popular open source firewall distribution in the world if you actually had to reboot sometimes. Rebooting in an attempt to solve a problem is a sign of lack of ability to properly troubleshoot the problem and identify the real root cause.

      Sorry, I didn't mean to complain about it.
      Next time we will get more details and ask for help in Google groups.
      Sometimes the pfSense doesn't performance well with low traffic and low server load.
