Pfsense 2.0 on Nortel Contivity 1600



  • I made a small guide for those who want to install Pfsense on a Nortel Contivity 1600.

    • Open up the unit and connect a CD/DVD drive

    • Unscrew the motherboard and connect a keyboard and a monitor

    • Boot Pfsense (i386) and install it on the hard drive (replace it with a quieter is recommended)

    • Configure LAN with an interface and IP-adress (very important!)

    • Fasten the motherboard, the PCI-cards and boot the unit and start using Pfsense!

    I could not post in the "Working specialist platform" thread, but maybe a notice in there could help others.
