I’ve been thinking about replaced my older firewall/router appliance with something newer and more modern (and more powerful). This is for my home network. I was pretty much set on pfSense but Tom’s recent videos on Untangle have gotten me interested. I do like the visibility into what is going on within the network, and with so many different users/devices/“things” on my network, I’d sure like to know what is happening!
But I’m used to systems where I can give my objects names and then use those names within the rules/policies. Then I don’t have to remember “what is 172.17.55.37?” pfSense can do this, as well as many other enterprise level systems I’ve used over the years. I’ve spent a few hours playing with Untangle and so far I haven’t found a way to do it. Am I missing something?
