Manage multiple pfSense Installations

We are considering deploying several pfSense firewalls across multiple locations. However we are trying to decide on a remote management plan before moving forward. Looking for ideas from others who are currently doing this.

We have considered VPN to the network to access the interface. Doesn’t seem the most efficient. We have considered public ssh keys, but a separate login and keys would need to be generated for each tech needing access. A jump server world address this though.

What are some others solutions we should be considering?

Thanks in

  • ssh tunnel via jump box
  • open up web interface restricted to your companies IP address(es)
  • VPN (as noted, not as easy to manage)
  • Having remote access to client systems on the inside of the network.
