Installing Pfsense 2.1 on Zywall USG 200 - is it possible?
I have tried different versions of pfsense on a Dell OptiPlex 9010, 8 gigs RAM and quad Intel NIC with limited success. I seem to have issues with stability and some general strange behavior which I'm fairly sure has everything to do with the fact that I'm a noob. So, I have a Zywall USG 200 and was wondering if I could get pfsense load onto/into it? I've read about installing pfsense on Watchguard appliances but nothing on Zyxell - Zywall USG 200.
It has a Freescale 8343e CPU and 256 Megs of Ram.
Anybody heard/tried to install pfsense on Zywall Hardware?
Thank you Very much. :)
The Freescale 8343e is PowerPC architecture, currently pfSense only supports X86 (32 and 64bit). So no it won't run on that, sorry.
Hey, thank you for the quick response. I really want to learn the pfsense platform so I'll probable purchase a solid appliance and go from there.
If you just want to learn pfSense, pick up a cheapo box on eBay. No reason to go all-out on an appliance with less power than a $100 server :) (or better yet, run it in a VM network)
