This is a great course for anyone needing to understand the pfSense firewall system. It was well worth both time and money. The presentation of the instructor was very professional, well thought out and the demonstrations were extremely relevant and easy to follow. — David S. ★★★★★

This an excellent course, i started knowing nothing. Now I am no longer the one i was before starting and every topic is well organized… Hats off Ted, The instructor Ted made it become very easy for someone to learn. By the end of the course i feel very happy and ready to continue learning and keep practicing what I’ve learned from you. — Hermann S.F. ★★★★★

Excellent overview, and quick initial setup of pfSense. Good coverage on mentioning you can set it up in monitor mode to observe your traffic for a few weeks, after basic rules are in place; then review the logs to put in place any remaining necessary rules. I’ve studied firewalls before; but first foray into pfSense. I like it. — Kevin S. ★★★★★


pfSense is a full featured, open source firewall specific BSD build. You can download an image for free, and install it on your own hardware, or in your virtualized environment of choice, or purchase a very reasonably priced pre-configured device.

Even though pfSense is built on FreeBSD, you don’t have to know BSD or Linux to manage your firewall. You are encouraged to do everything you need through the browser based Graphical User Interface (GUI).
