FreeBSD support

Hi Crowdsec community,

We would like to inform you about our progress for the FreeBSD Operating system support of crowdsec agent.

The upstream package is available and you could now install the agent using pkg(8):

sudo pkg update
sudo pkg install crowdsec

Current architecture target is amd64 but nothing should prevent you to build from ports on others architectures (i386, arm, etc.).

There are multiple things to take care about while running crowdsec on a non Linux-based platform and we are working to address them.

In the meantime, if you want to test and report anything feel free to use the following issue #651. At the moment, the agent configuration need to be deployed manually.

We are tracking FreeBSD support efforts with the following GitHub project.

Hi Crowdsec community,

We would like to announce you, with the latest versions of crowdsec agent 1.1.1 and crowdsec firewall bouncer 0.0.13, the FreeBSD support has been completed and tested.

The firewall bouncer package is available and you could now install it using pkg(8) as well:

sudo pkg update
sudo pkg install crowdsec-firewall-bouncer

You should be able to deploy crowdsec agent and bouncer firewall on FreeBSD.

You could refer to the online documentation below to getting started on FreeBSD:

Thanks to everyone that help to make it happens.

Enjoy!
