1Gbps Throughput



  • Can any of the current pfsense boxes hand 1Gbps throughput?    It's not a pps thing.  I'm going to be using good old ftp to transfer stuff.  It's only 3 hops away on a 10Gbps link.    I will be running snort.      I do run OpenVPN at times.  Just trying to get a gauge of what sort of hardware I need.  Be it the stuff pfsense sells or white box stuff.

    The SG-4860 is able to do so and 500+ MBit/s of IPSec throughput too!

    No we are talking about real MBit/s.

    You should swap over to S/FTP or FTP/S soon as possible, the FTP protocol is one of the unsecured ones
    you would be able to use and FileZilla is free of charge as server and client software and vsftp too.

    It's only 3 hops away on a 10Gbps link. I will be running snort. I do run OpenVPN at times.

    That will be no problem.

    Both will be able to serve your needs for that. The budget will be mostly let it more then often fail or make
    it worth to discuss more about.
