PFSense with Amahi



  • I am getting a new server tomorrow, disappointed to find I am not allowed to transfer my windows server 2011 licence, good old microsoft.

    So I am looking with interest at this amahi, but it recommends it being used for DHCP and DNS.

    ON my pfsense box I have set it up that certain websites go via a different DNS, can I specify certain devices to use PFSense DNS and certain devices to use Amahi, because I cannot see how I can set up a dns forwarder in amahi.

    is anyone using this server?


  • Banned

    Eh? You mean Avahi? That's for Apple stuff mostly (or other things that support Bonjour). Cannot see how's that supposed to replace a Windows server?  ??? :o



  • Nope I meant Amahi, its apparently quite big with the kids on the block

    https://www.amahi.org

    However as part of install it wants (Does not require) to take over DHCP and DNS duties, hence my question



  • Nah scrub that, the server is free all the apps which are otherwise free elswhere are charged. I sort of get it, but to install the few things I want would be £80 or more. Might as well stick with windows.
