Freenas 11.2 Help


Can I get an ELI5 explanation on how to install Channels on Freenas v11.2? Thanks!


I don't use FreeNAS (FreeBSD?), but did you install the plugin from here?

If that doesn't help, I'm sure a FreeNAS user or one of the developers will reply.

If someone gave me an ELI5 explanation on how to get started, I probably wouldn't have learned as much as I have, but it would have been quicker to get up and running. I agree a WiKi or the like would help new users and ease the support burden for FAQ's.


FreeNAS 11.2 is not officially supported as it is still in beta/RC and they changed how plugins work.

You can either use 11.1 and install the plugin from our downloads page, or try Guide: Freenas 11.1 iocage manual install


thank you. I believe the official release is in two days. Will it be supported then? In that case I would just wait.


No it won't be supported until we get a chance to test and write a new plugin for 11.2


Thanks. I’ll hold tight in that case for that.


Do you see a list of available plugins in the FreeNAS 11.2 gui?


Yep. There are 25 or so in there now.


Is OpenVPN on that list?


Doesn’t look like it.
