PC-BSDâs graphical firewall manager

,----[ Quote ]
| PC-BSD is a desktop-oriented, FreeBSD-based 
| distribution with KDE as the default desktop 
| environment. The version due to be released 
| shortly is PC-BSD 8. Because it the only BSD-
| based desktop distribution thatâs in a 
| position to compete with the best Linux 
| desktop distributions, Iâll be publishing a 
| number of articles over the next few weeks to 
| introduce those not yet familiar with it to 
| some of its management tools. This post takes 
| a look at the graphical firewall manager.


Bordeaux 2.0.0 for FreeBSD and PC-BSD Released



Interview with Kris Moore, PC-BSD

,----[ Quote ]
| DW: From what I've read, PC-BSD makes a strong
| effort to add to the underlying FreeBSD
| operating system without changing the base. Are
| there any parts of FreeBSD you do have to
| change and what effect does this have on the
| system?
| KM: We've actually done a very good job at
| keeping as vanilla of a FreeBSD base as
| possible. With PC-BSD 8.0, the only differences
| are a few extra kernel configuration options,
| such as "atapicam" support to enable CD/DVD
| burning and options to enable some specific
| "pf" firewall features.
| DW: Could you please explain the relationship
| between PC-BSD and iXsystems? Do they
| own/control the project?
| KM: iXsystems owns the trademark "PC-BSD", and
| greatly assists it by funding some of its
| development, along with promotion and support.
| The project itself is open source, of course.
| All our code is BSD licensed and freely
| available.


Health Check: FreeBSD - "The unknown giant"

| FreeBSD is the most accessible and popular of
| the BSDs, has code at the heart of Darwin and
| Apple's OS X, and has powered some of the more
| successful sites on the Web, including
| Hotmail, Netcraft and Yahoo!, which before the
| rise of Google was the busiest site on the
| internet.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
