Why my 1.2 embedded keep rebooting?
I'm using 1.2 embedded as my firewall, the job is simple: provide NAT service.
but , after running like 3 or 4 days, it reboots automatic for no reason.
my platform is IWill G064 motherboard + P4 Xeon 2.8 +512M Ram+ 512M CF card.
why? any suggestion is appreciated
Plus, I checked /var/log/system.log , but every entry is made after the reboot
This is almost always indicative of hardware failure.
to submicron ,
I don't think it's a hardware problem. I tryed m0n0, and it had run for about 10 days without a reboot.
I'm really confused :(

Try running a hardware-test.
If it's the RAM: m0n0wall doesnt use as much ressources as pfSense.
It's quite possible that it runs well on m0n0wall but goes awry on pfSense just because m0n0wall never uses the faulty ressources.
Try adding the line,
To your /boot/loader.conf file and reboot your router. This will disable ACPI if the fault remains take the line out after a few days.
I think its cured my 14 to 15 day lockups under 1.2.1!
Thanks, now I'll switch back to PFSense and add the line.
It needs a couple of days to find out whether the problem is solved, wish me luck.
oops, the file can not be modified. vi returns a 'Read Only file system' message.
To GruensFroeschli ,
Thank you, I took the memory out of the machine, installed it to a server，ran Windows Memory Diagnostic, it seemed OK.
Is there a way to do a hardware-test under the shell of PFSense. Cause the machine needs a very strange KVM cable, I do not have one. so I can't use keyboard / monitor.That's also why I use the embedded version of PFSense.
Oh! If you are running embedded you will first need to make you os read/write with the following command
# /etc/rc.conf_mount_rw # ...make changes... # /etc/rc.conf_mount_ro
