Sun X4447A-Z Quad Gigabit UTP X8 Card



  • Does anyone know if this card is compatible in any way? Just installed it into my pfsense box but doesn't seem to be detected as an interface(s).

    The following is returned with a pciconf -lv

  • If this are the same cards as talked about in this thread, they are not running in 2.1.5 and 2.2.2
    Link

    The first or best option you have is to insert this card into the device, do a fresh and full install
    and see if they got recognized by pfSense 2.2.4 latest stable or 2.2.5 alpha.

    The second option you have is to insert this cards in the device and you might install FreeBSD 10.1
    pfSense since version 2.2.x is based on, and if you get the card working you should try out to copy
    the .ko module for this card over to the pfSense machine.

    And if nothing goes for you here are some cheap but Intel based multi LAN Port cards Link

    If you are aware of this refurbished cards and/or they are not PCI bus based you could at least try out
    to get your hands on some Soekris NICs! Link
