Installation and Upgrades / install on another PC move HDD
« on: March 01, 2018, 11:04:26 pm »
Hi ! I'm a complete newbie on PfSense, I have never installed it but I  need it to have a VPN that actually works ( VPN managing on normal routers is awful )

Anyhow here's the deal I have an old Box, that I want to use to run Pfsense on, however the Video Card is busted, and I don't have a replacement video card on that box, ( it's old, but It will do what I need ), anyhow, to take advantage of the old hardware, can I install pfsense on my own box ? ( moving the HDD to this PC ), then after it's installed and I guess Eth0 set to DHCP.

Move the HDD to the headless box and just manage everything from a web interface ( or over ssh, or telnet )

Any info feedback would be appreciated before I go on and do it.

Also would love to know if there's an automagic install. 

Thx !
