NTP is fine here.

sudo ntpdate router.lan
19 Feb 18:29:57 ntpdate[5804]: adjust time server 192.168.1.254 offset +0.000004 sec

OpenVPN clients (specifically to AirVPN UK) seem less stable than before though, but I have gateway action off for those as didn't want the firewall bouncing if the VPN is having issues.  I thinks its some quirk with the AirVPN client configuration rather than a pfSense problem.

I've been able to move my IoT WiFi over to pfSense directly as FreeBSD 12 supports 802.11n on the integrated WiFi card.  This was actually one of the improvements I was expecting from the new release so glad to see it works.

It still seems much slower than the nanoHD (but different channel so could be crosstalk related) but fine for IoT devices.

It means once I move to WiFi 6 I will be able to properly test how that functions on 2.4Ghz by ONLY having WiFi 6 clients on it.

If anyone has unbound instability on 2.5, a fast tracked update has been pushed in, can be updated with the following command.

'pkg upgrade -fy unbound; pfSsh.php playback svc restart unbound'

Well I seem to have solved the Plusnet monitoring issue when I changed the default gateway to one where all gateways are tier 1.

For some reason when I had it set to the gateway group that has both DSL as tier 1 and LTE as tier 2, that wasn't working correctly.  It blocked anything specifically directed out of the Plusnet WAN from the pfSense box, plus never fell back to LTE even when both modems were switched off.  Discovered that yesterday when my drop wire was being replaced.

Its really bizarre as it makes no sense that setting it to the gateway group where everything is tier 1 would make a difference, especially as monitoring WAS working for LTE which is what you'd think "might" break when it was set to tier 2.  I wonder if just changing the default gateway has somehow fixed a configuration glitch.

Can't say I've noticed any problems with Unbound though.

Unbound has so far been ok for me as well, but since is a lot of noise about it on netgate, I thought I would post it just in case.

Yeah its good to know, I'd expect a minor update to bring that patch into the main branch shortly.
