pfSense - Using Aliases to Simplify Firewall Rules

This is such a cool feature!

https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/firewall/aliases.html

It is. But, isn’t this a feature all UTMs have?

It quite possible, but it’s a new feature to me :slight_smile:

I wouldn’t really call pfSense a UTM, it’s pure firewall. Now there is addons to make it more UTM like but out of the box it’s a firewall

Sorry for the late reply. I just meant, as a concept, the alias for network services/hosts has been a UTM thing for years.
