SG-2440 Sound/Speaker



  • Is there anyway to add a speaker to the SG-2440?  I have a couple of these boxes in remote locations with no onsite tech.  I may ask staff to reboot the box when troubleshooting issues.  I use to use old PC's for this and liked hearing the chime when pfsense finished booting up that way I could confirm it finished booting.  So I'm looking to replicate the same thing just with these boxes.


  • Netgate

    No, but the 'rev 2' will have one, and other features that have been asked-for.



  • rev 2?  First I've heard of it!
    Any chance it'll have one of those fancy locking power plugs?  8)



  • Any chance you know when rev 2 will be out?


  • Netgate

    I do know, but it's not something we're making public yet.

    :D :D :D



  • You just made my weekend!!  8) 8) ;D ;D ;D (please no comments about my sad life Lol yes I get excited about these things)



  • Is the 4860 getting any kind of makeover as well?



  • How will one be able to tell if they have a "rev 2" 2440? Aside from hearing beeping noises, that is. It would figure that I would read this after just placing an order late last week. Somehow I missed this thread when it was first created.



  • Looks like a locking power plug would be a good indicator.

    Well that's a big fat nope… so they're not yet shipping Rev 2 2440's yet. :(



  • Hopefully the updates justify the substantial price increases since the Atom fiasco. I've been very happy with the RCC-VE 2440, and was shocked to see the price jumped $200 to $550, and the SG went up $50 to match. I was considering a second SG- or RCC-VE 2440 for another site, but that's on hold for now.

    I don't think there's anything worth $200 in upgrades, certainly not the 24GB of eMMC. ("*Note boards produced prior to 7 December 2016 have 8GB eMMC flash. Boards produced after 7 December 2016 have 32GB eMMC flash.")

    Appears like the same HW used to cost a whole lot less when bought from Netgate store instead of pfSense, see e.g. the review here.

    I chose to buy from Netgate rather than pfSense because the standalone Netgate RCC-VE 2440 costs just $349, a full $150 less than the identical pfSense SG-2440. If you buy from pfSense, you get two support calls, plus the knowledge that you’ve supported the project. But you can still buy support from pfSense if you buy the Netgate.



  • Yes, my point precisely.
