Watchguard 3 1000
Not sure if im in the right thread or not but im trying to figure out if it is possible to load pfsense onto my firebox 3 1000 and how i would go about doing that. ive spent 3 or 4 hours on the web with no luck so far. thanks to anybody that can help.
Look here: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,36651.0/all.html
and follow the links for loads of discussion. Also look generally in the Hardware section.
I have just got a 2nd hand Firebox X1000 - serial console, 6 10/100Mbps ports, 256MB memory. Loaded a current 2.1-BETA1 2GB image onto a CF card, installed, booted, assigned interfaces and away it went. I am not familiar with all the model numbering, so don't know what "Firebox 3" is exactly.
the firebox 3 700 and 1000 were the precursor to the firebox x-series only has 3 nic's 128 mb memory has console serial, 44 IDE and usb. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f1/WatchGuard_Firebox_1000.jpg
You can run pfSense on those boxes (Firebox II and III) but 128MB is now the minimum spec for RAM. People often run m0n0wall instead.
There are a number of threads about it here.
