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.
