    Any objection to make a pfSense system out of the above? I was thinking of putting it inside a Compucase 8K01

  • Is my above post so "off the charts" that you guys don't event bother to answer it?  :) Any comments?



  • I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work. However I have no experience with that board so can't say it will work. (I  suspect its pretty new and new stuff sometimes needs some driver tweaks before it will work.)

    If you are looking for a mini-ITX dual LAN board that someone has found to work with pfSense search the forums for some positive reports on a MSI board. I think its model number begins with IM.
