Open source projects gain popularity and thrive because of the invaluable contributions of many people. Everyone is capable of helping in some regard, and we encourage you to pitch in however you can. If you want to help, but don't know where to start, we recommend first taking your time to get to know the product and the community so you can be most efficient.
|Buying Direct||You can order hardware direct from the Netgate store or through a Netgate partner. Our pre-installed appliances are the fast, easy way to get up and running with a fully-optimized system.|
|Donations||We no longer accept donations and the main reason is we believe that your donation is better directed at the FreeBSD Foundation. Supporting the FreeBSD Foundation advances FreeBSD and pfSense® software benefits directly from these advances.|
|Forums||We have an active forum where you can get help, help others, and more.|
|IRC||We have an active IRC channel on Freenode, #pfsense. If you have a question, just pop in and ask, and wait for a reply. You can also use FreeNode's WebChat to join the conversation.|
