Max number of LAN nics [CLOSED]



  • Hello there,
    I'm going to aproach Pfsense 2.3.4 and I would like to know if there is a max number of NICs for the LAN zone.
    The simple question is: "Can I configure 6 ethernet cards eachone as gateway for its subnet?"
    i.e.
    NIC-0 as WAN interface
    NIC-1 as LAN interface for subnet 192.168.10.0/24
    NIC-2 as LAN interface for subnet 192.168.20.0/24
    NIC-3 as LAN interface for subnet 192.168.30.0/24
    NIC-4 as LAN interface for subnet 192.168.40.0/24
    NIC-5 as LAN interface for subnet 192.168.50.0/24
    NIC-6 as LAN interface for subnet 192.168.60.0/24

    Thans so much for your kindly help
    Best regards
    Dario

    Yes, works just fine.



  • There might be an upper limit in the FreeBSD operating system for the number of configured network interfaces but I bet it's in the order of thousands at least.



  • Great,
    thank you for your quick answers.
