And the original poster thanks you back,

and thanks everyone replied or gave my email attention.


Yes FBSD 7.2 could be the best for now..


Why did i send the email in the first place?

some releases may have issues! I remember 5.2 and 5.1..I had problems with it. this is why i stuck to my old 4.8

also I had a new project with radius, accounting, chillispot..when i installed 7.0 things didnot work as i expected..

take a note it was identical configuration  to i had to roll back to 6.2..


This time its a commercial use, and remote administration, so i didnot want to take the risk of having a wrong

"commercial version"


Thanks everyone.
