Choosing hardware



  • I'm looking for pfSense box with a minimum connection throughput over 70~80 Mbps for OpenVPN with some packages (Snort, ntop, and possibly Squid).

    When it comes to choosing the hardware I'm a total newbeginner, and find it very confusing to find the right parts (i.e. Motherboard which fits a dual Intel Pro 100 or 1000 NICs and CPU). PfSense mentions "Hifn, [is] capable of significantly reducing CPU requirements."

    Could any of you nice folks be able to help a fellow newbeginner?

    Thanks in advance!
