"I really put TNSR through the paces. What I found was that I’m incapable of generating enough traffic to stress the box - without a lot of effort - and that frankly, I’ll never generate real-world traffic anywhere near its capacity."

Secure Networking Bases Covered

Whether at home or in the office, safely connecting to the digital world requires three fundamental capabilities at the network edge.


Firewall Protection

Monitor incoming and outgoing network traffic and configure settings to allow or block specific traffic based on a defined set of security rules.

Secure VPN

Encrypt your traffic so no one can see what you do online, or interfere with your traffic - to and from your location, across the Internet, to its far-end destination.

pfSense Plus



Routing Control

Connect computers and other devices to the home or business to the world, choose the best route for your information to travel, and decide which computers get priority over others.
