pfSense virtio setup

If you are interested in running pfSense in a virtual environment then you might run into a situation where you only have virtio network adapters in a system.

The standard recommendation is to add a temporary supported network device to it. That can be very hard in some situations but there is a much easier way to do that.

- Boot up pfSense

- Choose 7 “Escape to loader prompt”

- When it boots choose “vtnet0” as your WAN device

- Install to harddisk by typing “99”

- Modify loader.conf to make it permanent
