PPTP server on pfSense

 One of the servers that are at my disposal has a very low CPU usage percentage (if that makes sense). On my way to set up a PPTP VPN server on the box, I realized my router running pfSense could do it out of the box. In this short tutorial, I'll show you how to get a PPTP VPN working so that you can connect to it anywhere.

Head under VPN -> PPTP

Adding another LAN NIC in pfSense

 

I recently swapped out my router (a PIII) running Smoothwall with pfSense. I'll say that I'm glad I switched. Anyway, what I found is that Smoothwall wouldn't let me add another LAN interface, making it a real router.

So, once you get pfSense installed, go to Interfaces->(assign) 

WorkSimple 1.0.2 Release, Biomass

Progression of WS (WorkSimple) 1.0.2, codenamed 'Biomass' has been going good. I have fixed the Theme changer, allowing each theme to have its own directory.
Some of the code for the control panel has also been re-written. An admin nav bar is in the works.
Also in advancement is the install; which has also been semi re-written.
Another big development [next] will be a modules API, allowing anyone to create modules for WS.
Icons and custom templating will be available soon, as well as the ability to change blog title, tagline etc... Favicon support too.

Hidden FreeNAS Link

Did anyone notice the little link on the bracket in FreeNAS(version 0.69b2)?
I got curious and looked at the HTML source:
FreeNAS © 2005-2008 by Olivier Cochard-Labbe. All rights reserved.  [View license]

See? The little bracket ([) is a link to www.tibet.com. Perhaps the author(s) feel the need to support human rights...Seemed kinda strange to me, anywho....
