The problem with manipulating iptables manually is that if you don’t do it every day, you forget all syntax details and the process become very long.
That’s why i think it is very important to keep the GUI interface working for most jobs.
Zeroshell is really the smarter router i’ve ever seen, just a couple of details are missing to be able to use it for advanced work.
The difference between zeroshell and other similar routers, is that when you do advanced things it does work. Other routers generally stop to work correctly as soon as you try to do multiwan, multilan, multi port forwarding, inbound load balancing and other things you can do reliabily on professional routers.
Pfense version 2 alpha seems to have interesting possibilities, but the testing i’ve done on it a couple of days ago show that advanced functions are extremely buggy or not working at all. The road seems very long to get a stable version, if there is one one day.
Pfsense version 1.2 is just not powerfull enough regarding routing possibilities in a multilan – multiwan setup. It does work with multiwan, but stop to work as soon as you try to add multilan at the same time.
At opposite zeroshell seems efficient and stable, more usable in the real life, even if the Pfsense GUI is better in some aspects, specially in the OpenVPN area.
