      There's a bunch of us who moved to Opnsense, the forums and admins are a friendlier place. With pfSense if we had fixes or additions we wanted it could take weeks and in some cases months to get them into the distro. In the case of Opnsense the response from the dev team is usually measured in hours and they come back with useful comments and often help improve what's been submitted. pfSense says it's open source, much of it is not. Opnsense is totally open source.

      Opnsense is possibly a little less polished in some areas as it's still a WIP, then again in some areas it's ahead of pfSense. It works well and has been exceptionally stable for me. It's just a personal choice which one you use. Opnsense is a fork of pfSense and both are forks of the original monowall project.

      17/20 is normal for for a default windows 10 setup for example. It blocks most inbound ICMPv6 packets by default ( according to RFC that's wrong, but try telling Microsoft that! ) and you have no global DNS entry for the machine in question so no reverse look up is possible, also by default Windows will use privacy addressing mode which means it's IPv6 addresses ( yes it will have more than one ) will change every time you reboot. If you ran a server on that machine it would be problematic but for day to day use it's fine. My mail server runs on a W10 machine and with a few changes here and there I get 20/20.
