So OpenBSD 6.2 came out today and some interesting changes (to me):
The kernel no longer handles IPv6 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (RFC 4862), allowing cleanup and simplification of the IPv6 network stack.
A new daemon, slaacd(8) handles IPv6 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (RFC 4862).
One huge change in 6.2 is also this:
Incoming and forwarded IP packets are now processed without KERNEL_LOCK, resulting in better performances and reduced latency.
Excellent news for everyone who runs OpenBSD routers.
I was about to mention the benefits for pfSense but it doesn't apply since that is based off of FreeBSD.
Speaking of pfSense, getting the itch to build/buy a pfSense based router, I need something with a SFP port for my FTTH. Mikrotik's RouterOS works well enough but I would love to move my home network's routing to using F/OSS software.
Is there something like that in the market I should be looking at?
@staticsafe I was going to suggest the Intel x710 series, I use them everywhere for everything. but looked it up on newegg, and they're like twice that... so nvm.
perhaps this was a wasted toot. there is no information in it other than I considered that I might be helpful, but am not.
