The pfSense® software usage terms have changed

The pfSense® project was acquired last year by a US company called Electric Sheep Fencing LLC, and as a result the usage terms for the pfSense® software have changed.

We will be working over the next several weeks to ensure that our website is updated to comply with the new requirements.

We are pleased to begin offering our new range of Rident™ firewall and router software images for download, which are based on the pfSense® software and optimised for our hardware.

We apologise for any inconvenience or confusion caused.


How to backup a fit-PC2 using only a USB stick (and some creative partitioning)

This tutorial shows you how to back up your fit-PC2 workstation (or any USB-bootable computer) so you can quickly and easily restore your computer to its original state in the event of a hard drive failure, or infection by a trojan or virus.

It involves creating a new Linux partition on your existing hard drive, and works for both Windows and Linux workstations. All you need is a USB thumb drive and some free software.
