Hardware / pfSense TouchScreen
« on: February 27, 2018, 09:13:29 am »
Hello Everyone,

I've ordered all my parts, and I started to think about things. It's going to be a giant PITA if I need to work on my router, and I can't access it via ipmi. I'd have to disconnect everything, move it to my work area, power it up, and work on it. Thats way too much work for this.

My questions are;

Does pfSense have touchscreen driver support? (no biggie if it doesn't)

Would a Raspberry Pi 3 7" screen work as well?

The goal is to get a small LCD Screen to work on it. Wasn't sure if the pi 3 screen needs to have the pi3 connected to work or not.

Hardware / Overkill or Under Qualified?

Hey Guys,

First off, this'll be my first build. I started looking into pfSense when my router started having issues. The issues being randomly dropping the lease time. It'll have 20 hours left on it, and it just drops. A friend who I have high regards for, suggested I build a pfSense box. Here's what he gave me to work with;

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 3 1200 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor
MOBO: ASRock - AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard
RAM: G.Skill - NT Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2133 Memory
NIC: Intel Quad Port Gigabit

I've always been a huge fan of VMWare, being a former contractor there, I've learned quite a bit about ESXi. I wanted to give it a shot, however I'm on a bit of a budget. I'm trying to get my build below $500 in total. I abuse my internet like crazy, I push a ton of traffic between services I hosted, my own projects (Such as Archiving with IA), and other things. My question is;

ESXi: Yay or Nay?
If Yay, will the build be powerful enough?
Secondly, how does vmotion work with pfSense?
