New build - MSI Z97I AC - HP NC364T



  • Hi!

    I want to build my first pfSense box.

    Main/first use wil be:

    • VPN (IPsec/openVPN)
    • Whitelist users to e.g. FTPS server
    • Monitor network traffic
    • Create a DMZ for a webserver

    Internet access is provided by a 400mbit (up&down) FTTH connection

    Will this hardware work?
    Motherboard: MSI Z97I AC ( www.msi.com/product/mb/Z97I-AC.html )
    NIC: HP NC364T PCI Express Quad Port Gigabit Server Adapter
    CPU: Intel Pentium G3460
    Memory: tbd
    Case: tbd
    Storage: tbd
    PSU: tbd

    I allready stumbled upon some posts that the Wifi is not (yet) supported.
    Is there anyone with experience with this hardware?
