Title: OPNsense 17.1.4 image refresh
Post by: franco on April 03, 2017, 10:48:08 am
Hey everyone,

We are happy to announce the immediate availability of the renewed OPNsense 17.1 images based on version 17.1.4. Apart from the numerous improvements since the initial release, the images have been switched to use the virtual console driver vt(4) as a default to address boot issues. They also feature a new config importer and fix the serial console display of the installer.

For more than two years now, OPNsense is driving innovation through modularising and hardening the code base, quick and reliable firmware upgrades, multi-language support, fast adoption of upstream software updates as well as clear and stable 2-Clause BSD licensing.

Download links, an installation guide, the full list of changes and the checksums for the images can be found below.

Install Instructions

The boot process gives you the opportunity to run several optional configuration steps. It has been designed to always boot into a live environment in order to be able to access the GUI or even SSH directly. If a timeout was missed simply restart the boot procedure.

All images feature the new "opnsense-importer" utility, which is now invoked instead of the early installer. You can stop the automatic timeout by pressing any key. Afterwards you will have the opportunity to select a disk to import from. If the option times out or the importer is exited without a disk selection, the factory defaults will be used for the boot.

The next prompt will be for manual interface selection. This step is well-established since OPNsense 15.7 .

The system will then continue into a live environment. If the config importer was used previously on an existing installation, the system will boot up with a fully functional setup, but will not overwrite the previous installation. Use this feature for safely previewing upgrades.

If you have used a CD-ROM, VGA, Serial image without a config import you are by default able to (a) log into the root shell using the user "root" with password "opnsense", or (b) log into the installer using the user "installer" with password "opnsense". The GUI will listen on for user "root" with password "opnsense". Using SSH, the "root" and "installer" users are available as well on IP Note that these install medias are read-only, which means your current live configuration will be lost after reboot.

If you have used a Nano image, your system is already up and running as it is designed as such. It is set to read-write attempting to minimise write cycles by mounting relevant partitions as memory file systems. If you should require an installer anyway, log in as user "root", select option 8 from the menu and type "opnsense-installer". The "opnsense-importer" can be run this way as well should you require to run the import again.
