    Altice Fiber With Own (PFSense) Router (Idea)

    Hi All, Altice just rolled out fiber in my area (NJ) and I have been searching for a way around using their crap ONT/Gateway AIO. From what i've read, you need to keep the provided hardware and double NAT the network.. This isn't an optimum *pun intended* solution for me. So here is what I am...

    Atom C2758 on borrowed time?

    I have a Supermicro C2758 running PFSense as my main router, on gigabit fiber with an OpenVPN server. It's been freaking amazing since I deployed it and I just assumed I could keep it going forever. I was totally out of the loop on all the discussions of the Atom C2000 AVR54 bug that renders...

    pfSense / 10Gbe Networking Help

    Hello, I've always ever had a single wireless router in my environment, but as I get into servers that start to serve larger amounts of data and have insecure Internet of Things devices in my network, I think it's time to get into VLAN capable switches and a pfSense firewall. I don't think I...

    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.

    New 1U pfSense build - Can't decide on hardware

    I'm working on a new pfSense build to replace a SuperMicro 1U D525 build (which of course, doesn't have AES-NI support and will therefore be incompatible with future pfSense releases). I've decided on the SuperMicro SC505-203B as the case because of the front facing I/O. Comes with a PSU...
