Looking for 1u appliance



  • Hi,
    I'm looking for 1U appliance to run pfsense

    Anybody is selling something like Nokia IP 330, or watchgurad firebox's ?



  • I have an IP330 that is just taking up room.  Its got the additional 2 port Ethernet card, for a total of 5 interfaces.  It also has the crypto card that I installed shortly after getting it.  Cant remember if the crypto card was recognized or not by pfsense.



  • We sell a 1u appliance, although it might be overpowered for what you are looking for (core duo processor, dual intel gigabit nics).  http://rockbochs.com/products.php#strongbochs

    Otherwise, I've got a huge stockpile of Nokia IP330 motherboards that I don't know what to do with.  Unfortunately I don't have the case or psu, but if you just need the motherboard you are more then welcome to just have it.



  • @Sifter price?



  • You can get this chassis from Netgate and then mount up to two ALIX devices in it:

    Rack Mount Server Case for ALIX & Soekris

    Should cost about $400 to get a single ALIX rackmount system up using that chassis, add another $200 or so if you want a redundant setup.  :)

    I really like the look of your boxes.  How much are these? options? Can we run regular PFSense on them?

    I apologize for the delayed reply, cost is totally dependent on configuration.  Feel free to use our web form to contact us for more details, I'd rather keep it off the forums.  Thanks!



  • Anyone been able to get to their website? Been down for the last 3-4 days.

    We've certainly not been down for 3-4 days! We were down however most of the day yesterday(09/03/2008) from about 7am-3:30pm CST due to outages our ISP was experiencing with their backbone provider.  :(

    it looks like from the screenshots that it is already running pfsense … just configured with a Rockbochs gui

    Yep, it runs pfSense beautifully.  We just installed a unit into an educational institution, with a total of 6x GbE ports and 4x 10/100 ports.  Running netperf for 30 minutes shows a consistent throughput of around ~940Mbit/s on the GbE ports and ~88Mbit/s on the 10/100 ports.

  • I strongly recommend purchasing your pfSense hardware only from the vendors on our Recommended Vendors page. This way you're patronizing the companies that have been supporting this project for years.

    Thanks Chris, I fully agree.  Please look at the vendors on that link first, it's only right.



  • What manufacturer/oem makes the hardware Rockboch is using?
