WireGuard on pfSense

Netgate has “just” published their first post, describing official in the latest development snapshot of pfSense 2.5.0.

As a engineer, routing enthusiast, technical supporter, and DN42 participant. Hearing about the upcoming WireGuard support for pfSense has me very excited due to the ease of use. And simplistic configuration. Making it – in my opinion – the most attractive VPN solution for P2P-mesh VPN network(s) and Road Warrior access on-the-go. Plus the support for WireGuard is close to ubiquitously supported on *most* major platforms via direct development support (& 3rd party software solutions).

Netgate mentioning – in their blog post – they have been a sponsor for the development needed to get WireGuard supported on has me thankful, even thou I am not a paying customer of theirs (i.e. a prosumer #wfh).

pfSense not having WireGuard support. When OPNsense introduced WireGuard (& ZeroTier) support months ago. Have had me seriously consider over the Christmas period to my prosumer solution to OPNsense. Just for the VPN support of WireGuard & ZeroTier alone. Now, however… I am convinced to stick with pfSense for more years to come. And excitedly looking forward to the next stable release that will very hopefully include the recently announced WireGuard support. (/^▽^)/
