Im wonder to make a PFSense firewall whid this board:VIA EPIA-M700
Anyone have any experiense whid pfsense and that board?
And does anyone know if this board can boot from the onboard CF-reader?
I have not had experience with the board but its specs look pretty good. As far as the Compact flash goes the reader is integrated with the IDE bus so being able to boot would probably be just a matter of the actual CF card you used. The only issue I see with it is price compared to some of the newer atom solutions. However, going with a more mature platform will make things easier to get working due to the stable releases of pfsense being based on the older releases of FreeBSD.
I used the Via Epia-M several times with pfSense, never had problems!
dalfarra: Are you talking about the VIA EPIA-M700, or the older VIA EPIA-M (http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/mainboards/motherboards.jsp?motherboard_id=81)
