    Firewall with large number of interfaces/vlans

    First post, so be gentle :) I am investigating a firewall solution that would enable me to have a large number of interfaces / VLANs behind a firewall. My current go-to solution is pFSense, however due to some limitations of how the pfsense was written the system is mostly unable to deal with...

    Samba on FreeBSD: nmbd 'namequery' errors in terminal from other IPs on LAN

    Hey, so this has been an ongoing problem for me for at least a year now. It doesn't seem to have any negative effect other than being highly annoying. I haven't noticed it on Linux VMs, but on my FreeBSD VMs (I've run at least 3 over the past year), my Samba configuration appears to be...

    FreeBSD/FreeNAS vs OmniOS/Napp-it write speeds when used as ESXi NFS VM datastore?

    Hey, so I've done a couple all-in-one ESXi boxes with either FreeNAS or FreeBSD with ZFS I pass to ESXi as NFS datastores. Tried to run VMs but benchmarks exposed gawd-awful write speeds, totally unusable. Just ended up using them for ISO storage and (slow) backups, content libraries, etc...

    SR-IOV i350T4 on Hyper-V to pfSense/FreeBSD VM?

    Yes, I know pfSense is meant to run fine on abstracted virtual switches. But I have hardware that will expose SR-IOV to the VM, so I'd prefer to use that, if at all possible. I can provide SR-IOV to a Windows VM fine and can even find details for setting it up for Linux, but am getting nowhere...

    Planning a multiseat, virtualized workstation

    With AMD's Zen around the corner, I am getting ideas about what I might do with a crazy number of CPU cores. I am looking to build a computer for use as a multi-seat workstation. I would like to have my host be some very stripped down OS (as close to "bare metal" as possible), and exclusively do...

    Running ZFS on Ubuntu vs Freenas and ZFS in the cloud

    Hey Guys I was thinking if anyone in this forum might answer me couple of things i don´t know the answers to myself. 1) I know you can run ZFS on a virtual machine if you do PCI passthrough (with LSI controller with the 2008 chipset). But i´m wondering who provides a good service running ZFS...
