PfSense Network Design Opinions



  • Hello, I am considering redesigning my home network that currently is set up as follows: Verizon Fios ONT –--> Quantum Gateway Router ----> Cisco Meraki MX64 (As DMZ Host on Quantum Gateway Router). I have two rack servers that I plan to use as vSphere hosts and a vCenter server, they require FQDN and the Cisco Meraki MX64 isn't quite made for a router. Would a good solution be: Verizon Fios ONT ----> Quantum Gateway Router ----> Cisco Meraki MX64 (As first firewall) ----> pfSense Router ----> Switch? Any other opinions on this design?

    Why would it not just go Verizon Fios ONT –-> MX64 - switch?

    Why do you think you need 3 different routers/firewalls?

    Or if you want to use pfsense

    Verizon Fios ONT ---> pfsense - switch?
