6 Tips to Make Your pfSense Update Smooth
It’s important to ensure that your firewall is up-to-date with the latest security patches and bug fixes. As important and basic as this sounds, it’s just as easily forgotten. Don’t just set and forget your firewall. Set reminders on your calendar, read the Netgate Newsletter that discusses the latest updates, subscribe to the Netgate Blog feed, or just make it your mission to check for updates on the first and the fifteenth of each month. Whatever you have to do to remember, run the updates.
Updating pfSense is easy, but every firewall is set differently and there are some best practices to observe before and during your update that can make the process smooth from start to finish.
