I ended up using mine as a PFSense box. Works flawlessly as such.
It's been a while, but i think on mine it didn't show up until I actually put a GPU in the PCI-E slotJust tried flashing the DT122-BE with the modded BIOS and it doesn't have the GPU settings under chipset - anyone else hit this?
I run pfSense inside HyperV on Windows Server 2019. I wasn't able to get gigabit speed with the onboard adapters. I ended up adding a 2 port Intel Pro 1000 PT card and get full gigabit speeds. Maybe the onboard NIC could do gigabit if pfSense was running directly on it, but I never tried that. I'm not using any IDS/IPS. I also run a Debian VM in HyperV for NxFilter DNS.What is your line speed and are you running any IDS/IPS? If so, what speeds are you seeing?
Here's one at a crazy stupid price.Anyone have any leads on current ebay listings? Thanks!
Hi Asmo,Since it seems like people are looking at the moment, I have a few HP T730s I'd be willing to sell at cost + shipping. They're MD RX-427BB with 4GB ram and 64GB SSD. I would sell them $120 each + shipping. Drives are wiped and includes power supply.
Just to give some ballpark context: RX-427BB is really close to the performance of an i7-920; I wouldn't expect high performance IDS/IPS out of these. I'd think about mirroring your LAN trunk traffic at the switch to a second port and running IDS on a sufficiently fast second box. RX-427BB can handle routing/firewalling/wireguard without issue but I'd expect IDS/IPS to be a stretch on a <40W machine.What speeds are you getting and what is enabled on yours (ie...IDS/IPS stuff or anything at all)?
