Difference?



  • What is the difference between this:

    http://store.netgate.com/APU4.aspx

    and this:

    http://store.pfsense.org/VK-T40E/

    ?

    Also if there is no difference, I was looking at saving some money by getting this and installing pfsense on it my self because I don't really need the 1 year of support:

    http://store.netgate.com/kit-APU1C4.aspx

    Was going to get it with the mSSD so I would have the option for snort. Will it be the same as buying it with the software preinstalled? Are there any guides for installing pfsense on this hardware yourself? With the mSSD option I dont really have anything to flash it with so I am not sure how I would get pfsense on it.



  • There is no difference in the hardware.

    The VK–T40E basically comes ready to go with pfsense installed.



  • I'm pretty sure the $150 is for people who aren't utter lost idiots to install the firewall, back the installation with support etc and answer all the silly questions that may be asked by the buyer…



  • Hello,

    Was going to get it with the mSSD so I would have the option for snort.

    The same as @kejianshi was telling but on top from me, here in Germany where I am
    living, I am able to buy the pfSense Book [Pfsense: The Definitive Guide] for nearly ~35€
    and then there is not really all inside what is new, what was changing and what is urgent
    to do, but then I have to read this book and on top then to understand what is really going
    on, to build and install the pfSense like this guys would be able to do, but this is not really
    all as I see it right, because the install service when a reinstall is needed will also shorten
    time that you now have to waste.  :(

    Will it be the same as buying it with the software preinstalled?

    Never! If you buy it from the pfSense store you only have to unpack and power.

    Are there any guides for installing pfsense on this hardware yourself?

    • Via Google surely
    • here in the forum also
    • buying the book can bring you some more knowledge

    But this is needing much time and time is also money!  ::)

    With the mSSD option I dont really have anything to flash it with so I am
    not sure how I would get pfsense on it.

    Once more again, and why know 150 € saving was a big deal?  :-\
