PFSense on HyperV - max speeds?
richiela last edited by
I currently have setup that goes modem->switch->hyperv server->pfsense->(switch technically)->client.
If i set up my client to have a static IP and thus bypassing PFSense, i max out at the theoretical 100mbs… If I get a DHCP'd address and NAT through the pfsense VM, i max out at around 60mbs.
I'm running 2.0.3 and my CPU is around 90% when operating at 60mbs
a) is there something i missed in configuration that is causing this problem? (nic driver?)
b) is there anything in hyperv I missed?
c) this looks like a virtualization problem not a pfsense problem?
Any other thoughts?

did you download the pfsense .iso w/ the modified kernel for hyper-v?
i use this with no problem in 2008 and 2012 hyper-v
i use the one for 2.1 and just give them 3GB for HDD and 1024MB of RAM
and I get 100 up and down
