Upgrading to Intel I350v2 card

  • Hi, I'm currently running pfsense with my WAN using the the onboard NIC and my LAN using an add-in PCI card. Since this is a m-ITX board, there is only one PCI slot. I would like to move both the LAN and WAN interfaces to a new Intel I350v2 card. What's the best way to upgrade while keeping my current configuration? My experience tells me I can't simply backup/reload the current configuration when changing ports since those are hardcoded in the xml file. Thank you!

  • The xml file is opened with a text editor and the name of the old interfaces is changed with those of the new network card.

  • Worked perfectly! Thank you!
