Is there a way to run pfsense as a VM in any of these Telstra Cloud hosts?
Telstra don't allow an install of any iso on their hosted servers only the usual M$ rubbish and few flavours of Linux.
I understand how FreeBSD uses its own kernel etc for routing and firewall protection, and have installed many many boxes all running flawlessly. I've also installed many on esxi without the slightest problems. Hyper-V - what a nightmare; gave up… 9or there a Hyper-V solution now?)
Does anyone with any other Linux experience think it's possible on any of these distros?
CentOS 5.5 (32/64-bit)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 (32/64-bit)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 (32/64-bit)
SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP4 (32/64-bit)
SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP1 (32/64-bit)
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 - Enterprise R2 (32*/64-bit)
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 - Enterprise SP2 (32*/64-bit)
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 - Enterprise R2 (64-bit)
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 - Web R2 (64-bit)
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 - Datacenter (64-bit)
Microsoft Windows Server 2012 - Datacenter R2 (64-bit)
To me, its not clear what you are asking?
If you are asking can pfsense be ran as a VM in any of those OSs you listed, the answer is yes. All of them, under vmware.
