Freenas, samba on pfsense



  • Can I do this? This is for a home system, not the USS enterprise.
    Wondering if I could do this since my wndr3700 has a lousy 10 MB/s speeds for USB, pathetic.



  • at the end of line, it's your system ;)

    you can do it, but only if you have know-how(I don't have it).



  • What hardware are you running on? It will be easier if you can virtualize each one rather than try to get pf sense to run them all.



  • Not fast enough for that. I was wanting to use a slow 2.0ghz p4.

    I don't think getting samba on would be that hard would it?



  • The hardware sounds fine for virtualization, but you really have to try to get an idea for sure.
    Regarding installing Samba, well, you have to know a little about FreeBSD and how to deal with install problems which might crop up without everything going belly up. Good luck and let us know if it works.

    I have to agree that you probably could virtualise pfSense on that hardware with CPU cycles to spare.
    My own box is a P4-M underclocked to 1.2GHz and it handles my loadbalanced WANs (60Mbps total) with ease.
