  1. Nice video, can you show me how many physical NIC on your PC, are you using router mode on your router that will dial up automatically to get online? got confused a bit on your network topology, want to create the same setup at home. can I use VMware Free edition to create that?

  2. This is sooio cool. I've been trying to find an already made FW ready to install on an old router. I wonder if it'll work. 😃

  3. i really liked this tut, which made me update my pfsense server…

    Can a customer (user with prepaid code) disconnect from the pfsense server and keep the remainig time…? for instance a user has paid for 2hours, he browsed for 45mns, and disconnected himself, could the server conserves the 1h15mns remaining for the user the next time he attempts to log on or the server will delete it ?

  4. nice tutorial, i am wondering if you could make a video tutorial (step by step) on how to install freeradius2

  5. HI thanks for sharing this wonderful video
    but here i would like to request you kindly please help to setup and DynDNS IP and Open VPN
    Can you please help in this case?

  6. pfsense has limited hardware support nic would work for so long then pfsence software would drop connection completely hardware would still be present and working just not the connection still waiting for a fix… 0.0.0.0
