The prototype version of the Firewalla Red was done on a raspberry pi 3, we love that platform. And later most of our control plane work was done over docker containers, which is x86 based. We love that platform as well.
We have received many questions and suggestions on getting Firewalla running over these platforms. The short answer is, yes ... and but
- Maintaining many platforms is not easy, each new thing added to our list will require a tremendous amount of work to do the upkeep, which includes lots of testing.
- We are also a startup, we do not have the resources to throw around.
In order to provide the best plug-and-play experience, we will likely only focus on our platform for a while.
Hi !, any progress in the raspberry installation ?
We are using Raspberry Pi only for internal. The full distribution needs work. So it is not plug and play. Someone tried it already, something broke and we have no bandwidth to fix it.
Any chance I can get this working on Docker on a Odroid XU4? Should be the same as Raspberry Pi but I've read around that it won't work as the app requires the QR code...
I could get it working and adjust the code, but how do I get it to pair with the app?
If you can wait a couple of months until we have a bit more time, everyone is tied up with our own platforms, and these platforms do feed us ... which then help us get more good people to build an awesome product
In short, everything used to work and we just have zero (maybe even negative time) to make every single platform work ...
Where are find the open source code?
It has been over 2 years.. when will firewalla code for Raspberry Pi be released? Will it ever be made available?
