  • I know vmware isnt supported any more but whats more robust stable better, installing pfsense on a vm or getting a physical machine and installing it on that

    If you're referring to the fact that pfSense VMware appliances have been discontinued, I think you might have misunderstood.

    Insstalling on VMware is still "supported" in the sense that it does run quite happily on products like ESXi, Player and Workstation.  It's just that the pre-built VMware appliances aren't being created by the pfSense developers now.

    It really isn't hard to install pfSense under any of those VMware virtualization products (or the open source equivalents).

    have a look under the Virtualization category here https://doc.pfsense.org.
