Hardware opinion with Gigabit fiber.



  • I'm looking at this machine to handle gigabit fiber with basic QoS, AV, Ad Blocker, IPS/IDS, and IPSec VPN.

    Will I be able to basically get 950Mbps with this hardware?

    Yes. Though not full encrypted Giagabit over IPSec.

  • Cool, thanks for the response!

    The machine has been ordered. Now to wait and figure out how to set things up to replace my EdgeRouter Pro.

    VPN speeds aren't as important to me so even 100Mbps is enough.



  • Even though you already purchased the hardware I just wanted to chime in here quick as well and mention that I have been using that exact same system with a symmetric gigabit fiber connection for almost two years and have been very happy with the performance. I basically have all the things installed that you mentioned in your post, although I don't use IPSEC anymore these days. This is a very capable little box and that will even scale beyond gigabit (I have done some basic 10Gbit testing with it).

    They back-ordered it so I am still on the hunt for one at a good price but thanks for the confirmation!!
