Arm fully supported?
« on: September 09, 2017, 07:37:50 pm »
Are there are limitations of the new ARM based firewalls (ie. NOT x86)?

Are all pfsense features and package addons supported on the ARM devices?

All pfSense functions are there, but some packages might not have ARM versions.

All of the base features are there, but there are some packages that are disabled or will not currently compile for ARM:

Code: [Select]
Open-VM-Tools
blinkled
gwled
LCDproc
Telegraf

Granted you will not be able to do much with something like snort on an SG-1000 given the hardware limitations, but it is there for both it and the SG-3100.

SG-3100 coming from Netgate is based on ARM but supports aes-cbc rather than aes-ni.
