PHP-Growl: Growl Talk Notifications UDP 9887 implementation deprecated. GNTP is the new standard notification protocol.
Growl no longer uses UDP 9887 to send notifications as of 1.2.1 (as far as I can tell). Free versions 1.2.2-1.3 and paid version 2.0 and beyond support a more robust, 2 way capable, notification protocol GNTP which utilizes TCP port 23503:
I understand that PFSense is implementing PHP-Growl and most likely not maintaining the package but I thought I would list this here in an effort to garner some focus/attention to either upgrading PHP-Growl to support GNTP or adding/implementing a different package that supports GNTP such as: Python GNTP library:
I have contact the owner of PHP-Growl to see if he had time or was interested in upgrading his plugin and will update this ticket as I hear back. Alternatively, on the off chance someone is interested in updating/forking PHP-Growl:
Although, it seems to make more sense to utilized the python GNTP library as the work already appears to be done, a web front end would be all that would be needed to be created.

Good find Warren! Hadn't seen that one. This would be great as it supports the old UDP implementation + new TCP GNTP.
I think between this and python GNTP we have solid options for updating this portion of pfsense.
Can we get this accepted and committed for a future build?
