PFSense vs Sonicwall

I set this box up for PFSense and it's working great.  I've noticed that PFSense has some great features to it and I've come to the conclusion that it's a better firewall than Sonicwall. It's certainly harder to manage that the Sonicwall, but the features are better on PFSense.

  1. Wow!! That's a huge statement. Will you be posting more about Pfsense in the future?

    1. Yeah, it is a huge statement. But I look at the features and can't help but notice the significant difference between the two. Yes, I will post more in the future.

  2. Hi Shane,

    I hope you didn't change your mind and will elaborate on why exactly you prefer pfsense over Sonicwall (and which model, if you don't mind).

    Thanks!

    1. Sorry, been busy. SonicWall hardware is terrible. SonicWall doesn't support dynamic lists over 1024 objects, pfsense supports up to 400,000. This list goes on and on.
