Title: States
Post by: xtcbt on July 21, 2015, 09:12:50 am
Hi I'm new here. I'm currently using pfsense right now but after testing opnsense, I figured out that this one has more potential and has lesser bugs and most of all more user friendly than pfsense.

Well, pfsense has a package called diag_new_states made by Paul Taylor and I find it very useful rather than using the default state. Is there any way to use that package here in opnsense or will you guys be implementing it in the future? It seems much better. Thanks!

We removed the old packages, rebuilding all of this what will become "plugins" in version 16.1. We haven't looked at that particular pfSense package, but i it is useful, we can consider merging it into the base installation. I don't see the need for a good and a bad states page.

Only problem is we're going to need help with the import as we have larger fronts to work on at the moment, e.g. said plugins framework or privilege separation to run PHP as non-root eventually.

Ok. Thanks for the quick reply. I'm hoping that it will be supported in the future. I'll be following your releases from now on and see what gets added. Thanks again and goodluck!
