Hi Franco,

I have probably after the last firmware update a major problem with HAProxy GUI. see my post here in the forum.

https://forum.opnsense.org/index.php?topic=8610.0

I think that it is a bug and hope that I'm here in the forum in the right area to post that.

UPDATE:ok has with Update what has just seen 18.1.7_1 solved.

Best Regards

Hi Nephiria,

Yes it was hotfixed a few hours after it was reported. But it seems you didn't use the -devel version (18.7) before because the bug was in -devel for over a month.

Hopefully this forum helps with reporting such issues before they are added to a release. :)


Cheers,
Franco

Hi Julien,

Late July as planned.

Half of the features listed above, however, are already active on 18.1.x.

Hi franco. I have question about VIRTIO support. Before I was start new post https://forum.opnsense.org/index.php?topic=8584.0 Do You have more detailed information about fully support of VirtIO NICS and IDS+IPS?  This support absent in related to the problem FreeBSD kernel + drivers or in OPNsense IPS service? By FreeBSD roadmap RELEASE announcement will be from 6 November 2018. I try to understant, it will be solve problem with VirtIO or we need to wait some updates from OPNsense team - dev + patching? If we need wait patching from OPNsense team like IPS patching - maybe do You have a plan, when it will be possible to solve this problem?

Regards,

Hi,

That's entirely up to the FreeBSD version you are referring to. We currently run 11.1, next is 11.2 with 19.1 (not this year's 18.7), but there is also 12.0 we don't know yet when to adapt to, closer to 20.1 probably...


Cheers,
Franco

Anywhere to download an image? I want to do a fresh install on my test box, to install with zfs it makes the most sense.
Title: Re: 18.7 development milestones
Post by: marjohn56 on May 11, 2018, 01:02:38 pm
AFAIK there is no image for 18.7.b*

It's beta so updates are done using *live* makes.

It is working without any issues at all on my live and test systems though.
Title: Re: 18.7 development milestones
Post by: Davesworld on May 11, 2018, 08:34:38 pm
Yes I know how to switch an existing system to devel but that will not do much for doing a ZFS install as I have the hardware necessary, eg, more than just two disks.
Title: Re: 18.7 development milestones
Post by: mimugmail on May 11, 2018, 09:53:56 pm
Never tried it but I think you have to install vanilla FreeBSD 11.1 with ZFS and bootstrap OPNsense on it ...
Title: Re: 18.7 development milestones
Post by: Davesworld on May 14, 2018, 07:33:46 am
That would work if I was desperate to get a ZFS installed OPNsense installation right now. I'm sure we'll get an installable image sometime in the next few months of 18.7. 
Title: Re: 18.7 development milestones
Post by: mimugmail on May 14, 2018, 08:39:38 am
I'd guess so .. yes.
Title: Re: 18.7 development milestones
Post by: franco on May 14, 2018, 09:37:06 am
When we say ZFS boot support that's what's meant... no installer support yet so an image won't help you.

The ZFS boot support, however, will make it into 18.1.8 so that opnsense-bootstrap works for the release version into a previously installed default ZFS FreeBSD 11.1.

With that being said, I am sure there will not be a ZFS installer image before 18.7-RC1.

Franco

It would be great, if I can set custom attributes in freeradius.
I need an extra option for 'mikrotik wifi' vlan assignment.
Once more how to edit the dictionary.
Normal VLAN assignment attribute doesn't work.

Can you open an issue in github / plugins? I can add such a field.
Title: Re: 18.7 development milestones
Post by: franco on May 19, 2018, 08:45:00 pm
Yes, FreeBSD 11.1 install on the standard ZFS settings is required. The procedure to install OPNsense 18.1.8 or later on top is explained here: https://forum.opnsense.org/index.php?topic=4255.0

just installed the os-theme-tukan.
its looks nice, something news.
unfortunately it not to find on the 18.1.8
Title: Re: 18.7 development milestones
Post by: franco on May 23, 2018, 07:20:57 am
That's entirely correct. We release 18.7 development milestones into 18.1.x when they are ready. Tukan will be in 18.1.9.

o QinQ interface removal

Cheers,
Franco

Why is this feature being removed?  It seems like a weird one to strip out.

Thanks.

Do you use this in production?
Title: Re: 18.7 development milestones
Post by: franco on July 18, 2018, 10:37:00 pm
It simply doesn't seem to work anymore and nobody could say they used it successfully.
