Disable beeps in pfSense

Filed under: Firewalls — Ray Olander @ 2:17 PM

pfSense 2.3.2-RELEASE-p1 (i386)

FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p9

Despite the articles I found saying these worked, these settings were not persisting between reboots for me:

/etc/rc.conf

kern.vt.enable_bell=0

allscreens_kbdflags=”-b quiet.off”

/etc/sysctl.conf

hw.syscons.bell=0

cmdline

kbdcontrol -b quiet.off

sysctl hw.syscons.bell=0

Instead, I deleted the above entries and added the commands to the global profiles config file. This worked for me:

/etc/profiles

sysctl hw.syscons.bell=0

kbdcontrol -b quiet.off
