Newb questions ESXi VM

  • i read the pfSense wiki on ESXi installation.
    i think my hardware allows for PCI passthrough of the physical NIC to the pfSense VM - is that not a better option for the WAN NIC?
    or should i follow the guide and create a vSwitch/portgroup/vNIC.

    once i complete the install of the pfSense VM, is there a basic configuration guide i can follow, or is it safe to allow the pfSense VM to connect to
    the internet? and then go from there….

    thanks in advance for any help

  • There has been a lot of discussion about this but I don't see any advantage in using PCI passthrough.

    VMware have their view of course and you can take that whatever way you want  ;)
