A usability request:

I have a number of (Cisco) IPSEC mobile clients connecting to the latest stable of pfSense and find it is difficult to quickly tell who is online and who is not (as one has to compare a column of "online" and "offline" entries).

I would suggest making the whole row (a dark-enough-to-read) green font when the client is connected and the whole row a red font when they are not. I think this would allow for a quick way to see who is connected (even better than replacing "online/offline" with colored icons) as it changes the client names as well for quick scanning.


It would also be really great if there was some way to configure the pfSense overview page (Dashboard widget) to always show the mobile tab for IPSEC upon loading.

The same two requests would also (eventually) apply to the upcoming wireguard UI.

Thank you for all your efforts on pfSense - it is a delight to use.

IPsec Mobile status/widget online green-bold. Issue #10340


#1 Updated by Jum Pers about 1 year ago

(the images are sanitized and the second is for the Status > IPsec > Leases page)

#2 Updated by Jum Pers about 1 year ago

(For me personally: the Dashboard widget is the more important of the two)

#3 Updated by Jim Pingle about 1 year ago

If this is done, the distinction should include an icon or other formatting change. Using red/green only as visual indicators is not very friendly to users who are color blind.

#4 Updated by Jum Pers about 1 year ago

Appreciate Jim's idea: either bolding the green lines (like when pfSense indicates that it is up to date) or possibly an icon associated with the green lines (or a sufficiently differentiated icon for the red lines) would work too (though the developers may have an even better approach).

#5 Updated by Viktor Gurov 12 months ago

On the status_ipsec_leases.php sets online status to green bold
and sets the IPsec widget leases tab background-color to bright green and bold font:
