DHCP Server and Relay
- Filtering by source and destination IP, IP protocol, source and destination port for TCP and UDP traffic.
- Limit simultaneous connections on a per-rule basis.
- pfSense software utilizes p0f, an advanced passive OS/network fingerprinting utility to allow you to filter by the Operating System initiating the connection. Want to allow FreeBSD and Linux machines to the Internet, but block Windows machines? pfSense software allows for that (amongst many other possibilities) by passively detecting the Operating System in use.
- Option to log or not log traffic matching each rule.
- Highly flexible policy routing possible by selecting gateway on a per-rule basis (for load balancing, failover, multiple WAN, etc.)
- Aliases allow grouping and naming of IPs, networks and ports. This helps keep your firewall ruleset clean and easy to understand, especially in environments with multiple public IPs and numerous servers.
- Transparent layer 2 firewalling capable – can bridge interfaces and filter traffic between them, even allowing for an IP-less firewall (though you probably want an IP for management purposes).
- Packet normalization – Description from the pf scrub documentation – “‘Scrubbing’ is the normalization of packets so there are no ambiguities in interpretation by the ultimate destination of the packet. The scrub directive also reassembles fragmented packets, protecting some operating systems from some forms of attack, and drops TCP packets that have invalid flag combinations.”
- Enabled in the pfSense software by default
- Can disable if necessary. This option causes problems for some NFS implementations, but is safe and should be left enabled on most installations.
- Data Intrusion Detection

What People Are Saying
Always great working with ITCRS and Fernando. He is prompt, courteous, professional, and he always gets the job done right the first time. He handles both the computer systems in our office as well as security cameras in several locations around the metro area. We would highly recommend Fernando to anyone requiring IT or security systems.
Always a pleasure working with Fernando and ITCRS. They set up a number of internal and external security cameras and someone stole items from one of our trucks and after the video footage was submitted to the police, it helped catch a wanted criminal in DC, MD, and VA after linking a stolen truck to that criminal. I feel a lot better having this system in place and wouldn’t have it without ITCRS’ help.
