Relations with OPNsense¶
OPNsense is built on top of FreeBSD. The aim of the OPNsense team is to stay as close to the original source as possible. OPNsense can be installed on a standard FreeBSD installation, this way a hosted system can be converted easily to run OPNsense. A bootstrap script is available to make the installation process a joyful experience.
To convert your FreeBSD hosted installation to OPNsense, see the OPNsense bootstrap script on OPNsense’s update tools @ github
