OpenBSD people ... I have a question as I am preparing an article for the next episode about OpenBSD in general and PF...

Just exactly/approx. how good of a firewall You can build out of OpenBSD? Should I simply think of pFsense or it can go way beyond that (more secure, more features, IDS/IPS)?

#openbsd #bsd #firewall #security


@viktormadarasz Prefer to run OpenBSD + pf than pFsense unless you want to configure and manage the firewall in a browser.
Also from what I have read OpenBSD pf gets the fresh code and features first, then it is written in to FreeBSD pf.
At the end of the day, you can't go wrong with either-- its a personal preference.
