Like putting 40 persons in a car ?
Yes, of course.
As long as the car is of the 'bus' type.
It would be a tight situation if your pfSense device was a SG-1000.
Or is it this 32 GB/raid 0 SSD/latest I9 core with Gb NIC ?
Btw : the 'server' is your firewall / router (pfSense), right ?
full squid package like squidguard ,Lightsquid
squid is typically a service that should run on a dedicated device / VM.
( I even think the latest squid package isn't worth trying ...)
Check these threads: https://forum.netgate.com/topic/147108/pfblocker-dnsbl-not-working/7 - People recommended to stick to one of them only, not using both together.
https://forum.netgate.com/post/879117 <- a few problems were raised when I tried to help one of the forum users to use them both, maybe will help to understand the problem.
The two packages do different things, there's no reason you cannot run both as long as the hardware will support it. Both can use significant ram.
