PfSense 2.01 / HP Proliant 658553-001 Server Comparability
I need to set up a pfSense 2.01 box for a small office and was thinking of using an HP Proliant N40L server (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16859107052) mainly for the excellent price point.
I'm trying to determine if pfSense 2.01 / FreeBSD 8.1 will be compatible. HP says the server is only compatible with Windows 2008 Standard Edition R2, Small Business Server 2011 Essentials and Red Hat Enterprise Linux but it seems like people are able to install pfSense 2.01 without problems. The only real issue I've seen people mention was the NIC so I was thinking of using this Intel two port card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833106015
Can anyone confirm if this will work or do I need to look at other hardware?
There's a recent thread about this very thing:
