Pfsense install

  • i will install Ubuntu LTS on a machine and then owncloud software.

    i want to use pfsense to lock the access to this Ubuntu machine from outside.
    But i see that i cant install Ubuntu + pfsense because pfsense has its own OS

    So maybe i have to have one machine with 2 NIC'S (for WAN AND LAN) and then on the LAN i put a switch to connect pfsense and Ubuntu machine

  • Yes, pfSense is a separate machine on the way in to your network. But you can run it as a VM along with other VMs on the same physical hardware, and have pfSense be the real front-end WAN and then talk to the other VMs in the back end (or out another ethernet or VLAN to more backend systems.
