Install pfsense on Linode
May be few of you has ready succeeded on it.
I try today to install Pfsense on a linode but without success.
Here is the following procedure i used:
Of course at differents steps i rename "FreeBSD" to "PfSense" and at step 5 i changed the command into:
curl -k https://frafiles.netgate.com/mirror/downloads/pfSense-CE-2.4.5-RELEASE-p1-amd64.iso.gz | gunzip | dd of=/dev/sda
The problem is when i try to boot from my "Installer" configurations my VM always move into state "offline".
Any idea ?
I also read this link which is the same:
Will that ISO even work on a Linode? The info at
suggests that it won't…AWS, Azure & VMWare only. None of those describe a Linode.
You could install FreeBSD using:
and then install the pfsense app & kernel-module software on top of it. However, that's only a suggestion. I have no clue if this works or not (the FreeBSD installation works because I've done it myself). I'm not responsible for any damage you may do by following my suggestions.
I think you're going to be on your own with this. The directions on how to install FreeBSD on a Linode contained in:
are pretty clear (IMHO). Installing pfsense on top of that will depend largely on what features of pfsense you want. You need to consult https://pfsense.org about that…
Thanks for answering. I am most looking for a firewall. (managing rule with access from same entry point)
And to be able to make all my linode machine communicate together using private IP.
@cvanngoc, I have the same error. i try
curl -k https://frafiles.netgate.com/mirror/downloads/pfSense-CE-2.4.5-RELEASE-p1-amd64.iso.gz
then gunzip pfsense….iso.gz
error: no space in device. There is only 475 Mbit.
Worked fine followed FreeBSD method only, I got the usb image with serial and i gunzipped the image on a mirror then just followed it to the letter.
use it if you want, works with that image.
