Post your pfSense build!



  • Hi, I'm not sure if this is something that will be welcomed and I can't seem to find a similar thread, but I think it would be useful to a lot of new users if people posted their current setup and what environment their build is used in. I didn't know whether to post in Support > Hardware or here.

    I'll start!

    Components:

    1U generic case with Seasonic PSU
    Sapphire e350 motherboard
    20GB Seagate hard drive
    4GB RAM (SODIMM, Corsair I think)
    Intel Pro/1000 Dual Gig-E network card

    Packages:

    Squid
    BandwidthD

    Supporting:

    Asus N66U with DD-WRT configured as AP (hoping to get an internal card at a later date)
    TP-Link 24 Port unmanaged gigabit switch
    50/26 internet connection

    Usage:

    I needed a router powerful enough to handle the encryption of an always on VPN service. My old N66U, which is now serving as my AP, choked and brought my internet speeds down to around 18/8. As I was on my third router in as many years, I wanted an option that could be upgraded as and when I needed. The build is used in my home environment. I'm a newbie and I don't understand half of the things it does, but it seems to work well for what I need!
