pfSense on Zyxel Zywall 1050 to install..



  • Hi everybody! Have anybody succeed to setup pfSence on Zyxel Zywall 1050 or similar? It is an old i86 based vpn concentrator without vga & keyboard port, running proprietary ZyNOS from built-in ide 256mb SSD.. any help you can.

    Any other specs? CPU? RAM? Serial console?

    Is it really 256MB (megabytes)? I doubt it's an SSD if so. CF card maybe?

    Looks like it has a serial console so hook something up and grab the boot log.

    Pretty ancient though.
