Hardware check for pfsense
I'm looking at returning to pfsense as a main FW instead of router rubbish, so im looking at running pfsense on this.
Anyone shed any light on this ? Any good,
Ill be running squid off this to and a few other things.
Looks like overkill to me. I'd be concerned about power consumption and noise level.
Ill shed some light.
I'm not really fussed about power or noise as its getting tucked up out of the way into a sound proof room :)
It will be fed by a dedicated 1Gb symetrical fibre line.
It will also be linked to a 10Gb switch Via SPF+ which will also see a 25 x 3TB hdd server ( 70TB ) attached. This will also connect to the net and have a FTP running off it.
Id like to know it will be able to cope with the internal demand and demand from the net.
I will no doubt also be running a little wireless lan off this also for local gaming partys , so being able to cope as max speed as possible would be reassuring.
Plus i want it to be future proof, as to when i fibre my home network as the kids never seem to go out and love watching films, downloading crap 24x7.
