Booting pfsense from flash memory



  • I have been researching installing pfSense on a CF.  Can you install packages (i.e. Snort) with the embedded version?  Packages do not seem to be supported but I wanted to double check here.



  • A limited number of packages is supported on the embedded version.

    One of the intended application areas for the embedded version is for "disk" with a limited number of write cycles (e.g. compact flash).

    Thanks wallaby. I'll look into a SSD. By the way, I understand SSDs do not work well with Squid. Would I get any benefit from Squid on a home network and not running any web servers?
