Symantec 5420 Questions
I know there is already a thread on this platform but I cant seem to post in it. Maybe a mod can merge the two?
Anyhow, this is my first attempt at installing PFSense on actual hardware and i have a few questions about this platform.
Has anyone used memory beside PC2100? Was thinking of picking up some PC2700, wasnt sure if it would work or not.
Which image do i download off the web? There are so many choices now, its kind of confusing.
I assume you mean this thread?
Looks like that box is fairly standard x86 hardware, I'd by surprised if 2700 ram didn't work.
What method are you planning to use to install? Install to a HD in a different box then transfer it?
Yea thats the thread i was looking at.
Not sure about the install yet, i dont have a PC that can do IDE, but was thinking i could maybe do a netboot install.
Does it have a usb port?
I think JimP made a usb memstick image with serial port console that you could install from if it will boot.
Yes it does have USB, assuming i can just dd img file?
The image files are gziped so you need to extract them first if you're using dd to write (physdiskwrite does it for you from Windows).
The serial memstick images are here: http://files.pfsense.org/jimp/
I see that there are two and they are different but I have no idea how. ::)
Edit: Try this one first: http://files.pfsense.org/jimp/pfSense-memstick-serial-2.0.1-RELEASE-i386.img.gz
