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.


Update – June 2014

Follow along as we show you how to install the pfSense® software onto an APU board, using either the standard image from the pfSense® website or our Rident™ ready-made done-for-you images based on the pfSense® software.

Or download our ready-made Rident™ software images, based on the pfsense® software and optimised for the APU and net6501.
