    OPNsense is fantastic. The only problem I have with it is the version number. It really should be called 20.8 instead of 20.7 ... Apart from that it's a huge improvement over pfSense I think.

      Minor plural mistake:

        OPNsense chugs along on using around 720mb of RAM with IPS enabled & a VPN running.

        Notes here for connecting OpenVPN clients in OPNsense

          I've tried to use it and it's pretty good.. but I find PFSense to be better for me as it has more advanced options in the UI. for 90% of people tho OPNSense is just fine.

            pfSense is very nice , I used it for years before migrating to OPNsense. Just out of curiosity what features do you need in pfSense that OPNsense does not provide you with?!

              It's not really a feature thing. It's more the language and expected use. PFSense feels more enterprise. OPNsense feels more "home user". That isn't a knock to either.. both are wanted and good.

                Okeydok, thanks for clarifying.

                I use opnsense myself for semi-advanced home use, but then again there is (or the last time I checked - was) not much difference. OPNsense have from my experience cleaned up quit a bit and depending on what throughput you need for certain workloads I don't think there is much difference. Perhaps Michael would like to benchmark network performance as well?
