AFP/SMB FileServer ontop of pfSense
I would like to know if it's possible to implement SMB or AFP into pfSense? Not seen any packages regarding this but was wondering if the community had any ideas?
It's possible, others have done it, but it's very much not recommended.
There is no package to do it so it would be an entirely manual install and config. Thus it won't survive a firmware update etc.
pfSense is designed as a firewall, adding extra services to it only reduces its security.
Search the forum for 'pfsense and freenas' or similar.
Okay, thanks for this, I'll hold off until I can virtualise the server!
Good call. :)
