A20 Dual Core + 1GB + 5 Ethernet Ports + WiFi for just 69$
Guys I found something interesting while my random searches for single board computers.
A20 Cortex A7 Dual Core CPU
5 on board Ethernet Ports
WiFi with 2 Antenna connectors
SD Card Slot
USB + USB OTG
And the board priced 69$ (I think they will supply free shipping).
Have you guys ever tested this with pF 2.1? Seems like an ideal candidate for home/smb firewall solution with an aluminium casing.
NOTE THAT I HAVE NO AFFILIATION WITH THE SELLER.
Cool - What will you install on it?
:-[ :-[ :-[ :-[
Sorry for my ignorance. I just found that pFsense is only for x86 architecture.
what about this one?
The company name is INCTEL. ::) A knokoff Intel
Actually my goal is to make a ready-made affordable appliance targeting home to small sized businesses. May be with some branding.
Do you have any suggestion for that?
Its a crowded market honestly.
Of course it is. I'm just trying to build up something I dreamt for a long time. :)
And Thank you for your input.
Hmmm - OK. That computer you showed is nice.
Also, the APUs are nice. Manufactured in taiwan.
Also low power dual core celeron and the 4 and 8 core supermicro atom boards work well.
For reference there's some discussion of the 5 port banana pi board here:
I think I better go with known hardware vendor such as SuperMicro with x86 arch. They have barebone kits same as in pFsense store.
Thank you both for your replies.
If anyone interested in banana pi + pfsense, then please refer the link posted by stephenw10.
Its not about porting, but using virtualization technology (QEMU) to run pfsense.
