Can I restore a m0n0wall configuration to pfSense
|The configuration formats of both systems have diverged over the years. As both systems progress, this is less and less likely to work.|
The restore functionality in pfSense can be used to restore certain m0n0wall configuration backups. Due to significant differences in the traffic shaper, any traffic shaping configuration in a restored m0n0wall configuration will be ignored. Everything else should be converted to a pfSense configuration and work the same as it did with m0n0wall.
If a m0n0wall version that supports IPsec filtering was in use, and are using a pfSense release earlier than 1.2.3-RC3, manual changes to the config are required to avoid having a non-working system. Every instance of <interface>ipsec</interface> in the config will need to be replaced with <interface>enc0</interface>. The configuration converter in current releases up to and including 1.2.2 was created before m0n0wall supported IPsec filtering, and m0n0wall implemented it differently than pfSense had already implemented it.
