Dear Manuel, Pascal and Everybody,
at the moment, i am retiring the last m0n0wall at my customer’s site, it’s a little special moment,
since this week’s been a very special for all of us admins, i guess.
This little box and its software has brought us throught the years without a hitch, providing
"access to the interwebs“ for a small business printer in the german no-fiber-slow dsl zone for
approx. 10 years. Only thing we had to replace was the cheapo power supply.
We will move from a trusted m0n0 1.2b10 running on wrap (We were stuck with 1.2b10 because of the
OpenVPN server requirement)
Flawless service over this long period of time, practically hassle-free - i just wanted to thank
everybody involved in creating that kind of awesome.
Additional benefit: no heartbleed on that thin, for sure, and no fritzbox worries either….;-)
Retiring the trusted box feels a little awkward, maybe the same awkward as it felt to stay at 1.2b10
back in the days.
On the bright side: we kinda stay in the family tree - pfsense on apu1c.
