Aruba 650 Controller



  • Hi

    I have this Aruba 650 Controller, it's a wifi controller. Can I install Pfsense on it?
    Maybe a dumb question, but your help is appreciated

    Thanks in advance :-)



  • If its hardware is listed as supported in the FreeBSD Hardware compatibility list then you have a chance. Doubt it.

    pfSense is a software firewall based on x86 or x86_64 system architecture if this controller is matching such criteria
    it could be, I would at first search for some success stories or the internal architecture tech specs. of this controller.



  • Thank you jahonix and BlueKobold, I can't find any earlier stories of a Pfsense install on this controller. I'll keep searching ;-)



  • Maybe have a look what hardware is inside that box. If the CPU is not x86 or amd64 compatible then save your time.



  • It's an ARM chip inside just FYI.
    Also why would you try turn a enterprise grade wireless controller/firewall into a pfsense router?



  • It's an ARM chip inside just FYI.

    Again, pfSense is a software firewall based on x86 and x86_64 hardware, but there is no ARM port or fork.
