Using OPNsense

OPNsense is an open-source operating system that was created from pfSense firewall software. You can use OPNsense template to create your own firewall.

1. Create the antlet

Create a new antlet based on the OPNsense template. If you don't know how to create antlets yet, please check out this article.

2. Set up access

To make sure your antlet and the site running on it is reachable, you will need to configure access. We recommend three different ways to do it. Choose the one that suits your needs best.

Configure a bridged network interface, to expose your antlet to your local network. By doing this, your antlet gets another IP address in the same network that your edgeLinux server is in (in addition to the 10.1.1.X address.) This method gives you full access to the antlet from your local network. You can find detailed instructions on how to configure a bridged NIC here.

1) Go to your antlet - Virtual Network. Click on +Virtual NIC. Select the interface and click on Create.

2) Click on Delete next to bblv (internal NIC). Click on "I understand, delete the default Virtual NIC!"

3) Start the antlet by pressing Start.

3. Connect to OPNsense

f you used Bridged Networking above, then use this address in your browser to access OPNsense:


Where bridge-nic-ip is the private IP Address of your antlet that's on your network.

If you used Port Forwarding above, then use this address in your browser to access OPNsense:

https://myantsle.local:1443 https://antsle-private-ip:1443

Where myantsle is the host name of your antsle and antsle-private-ip is the private IP address of your antsle and port 1443 is the custom port we defined in Port Forwarding.

4. Logging into OPNsense

Use the following default credentials for Nextcloud:

Username: root Password: antsle
