Nethsecurity 8 project

Good morning everyone
I wanted to know how far the Nethsecurity 8 project is
I find the possibility of switching from version 7 to 8 interesting
via web interface

thank you

Yes, you will be able to do it.


When? :smiling_imp:

We are working hard under the hood, you can follow the project here: Home | NextSecurity

Since a couple of months :slight_smile: This the migration package with Cockpit UI: GitHub - NethServer/nethserver-firewall-migration: Migration of NS7 firewall to Nextsecurity

You can install from command line:

yum --enablerepo=nethserver-testing install nethserver-firewall-migration

Then, if you want to configure the new project from the UI, you still need to use LuCI.

.img file don’t play nice (currently) with Ventoy. Which is quite a bummer: it recognize it as OpenWRT but that doesn’t start.
.ISO version or compatibility with ventoy are both interesting options to me.

Desiderata Act II: shell procedure to define at least the green ip address interface.
And use gloves. I had my hand got pretty scratched after install.

Not a matter of polishing, still a lot of bending, twisting, hammering and dewarping need to be done.
Maybe NextSec will gain traction, but currently the name for me is “FeatureStripped”.
I’m gonna meet PfSense…

I’d recommend OPNsense over pfSense. Neither is perfect though.
