Hardware / Intel Dual GIG-E NIC PCIE 1x Slot
« on: March 05, 2018, 10:48:17 am »
I have a Asrock J4205 motherboard that was in a media center that I recently replaced and I was going to re-use the board to replace the one in my PFsense box. This CPU supports AES-NI and is faster then the Celeron 1037u that is currently being used. But after looking at the board I realized it only has a PCIE 1x 2.0 slot (which I found odd) and my Intel NIC is a 4x. Now I know that the PCIE 1x 2.0 slot has at least double the bandwidth needed for a Dual Gig-E NIC, so I am not sure why it is so hard to find one.

The other option is to cut the end of the PCIE 1x slot to allow the 4x NIC to fit, but I am not sure if this will even work.

So, I am looking to see if anyone has some recommendations.

This is my current NIC:

OpenVPN / OpenVPN No LAN Access using PIA

Hello all.
 I have recently setup pfsense to use the OpenVPN client with Private Internet Access as the provider. My goal is to be able to connect to the VPN remotely so that I have access to my LAN at home and also internet access through the VPN. The problem I have is I just cannot seem to access any PCs on my LAN while connected to the VPN remotely. I do have internet access while I am on the VPN. If I try to even ping my LAN's default gateway, I receive destination unreachable.

Default Gateway -

Cable Modem - PfSense - Switch - LAN PCs

Firewalling / Bypass OpenVPN for specific Port

I have Pfsense 2.1 and currently setup OpenVPN with Private Internet Access. Everything is currently being routed through the VPN, which is fine.

The problem I have is I have a Plex server that needs port 32400 open to allow it access to myplex. How can I forward just that port to a specific LAN IP, so that it does not go through the VPN?

Hello all. Currently I am looking to replace my Netgear WNDR-3700 w/DD-WRT router with a pf Sense box for adding functionality and performance. I would like to use openVPN and be able to saturate my 100/35Mbps connection. Below is what I am currently look at using for my hardware. I am trying to keep the power usage as low as possible, without going down to the performance level of an Atom. Power costs are high where I live.  Case size is also factor, I would like to keep the size as close to a router as possible.

The only thing I am concerned with is using the Realtek NIC's in this motherboard. The main concern is compatibility with pf Sense. Now I know I can switch to a different motherboard with PCIE and get a half-height Intel dual-NIC, but this would increase the size of the case and also there would be far less options with mini-ITX cases. (That are not expensive)

Memory: 2-4GB (I have this already)
Storage: Either small 20-40GB SSD or USB flash (Recommendations)

I am also considering using Untangled with pf Sense, basically just for the spam/virus filtering. (This would be with ESXi)
