• Hey guys, it's been some time since I've used pfsense (have monowall on alix) but I have the need for a basic utm device. All I really need is a the firewall, inline av, and spam filtering. Could a alix2d2 board handle this for around 20 users on a 10x1 pipe?


  • Firewall, sure, easily. AV, maybe not, the CPU isn't very fast. Probably would work ok with HAVP. Gateway AV is pretty much pointless though, I wouldn't bother. Spam filtering we don't really have and is significantly more resource intensive than what you'll be able to run in 256 MB RAM and on that slow of a proc. That's better done on the mail server regardless.

  • I certainly appreciate the reply. Have a great day.
