Offline Update Possibility

Hi guys,

Apologies, if I have missed it: Is there an option to update IPFire offline (like QNAP or OpenWRT etc.)?

Many thanks,

No, you can take a backup, reinstall the system from media and then restore the backup. That would come close, but is a lot of work.

Thanks, that’s a pity. Any chance that you would consider offering this way of updating IPFire?

No, not really. I do not see much demand for it.

Mainly that is because IPFire is a firewall. It is normally connected to the Internet. This is a use-case that only very few people would benefit from, and quite frankly, we have only limited development resources and therefore should focus on things that are relevant to more users.
