dual ISP failover plus VPN tunnels on SG-4860
« on: March 12, 2018, 05:51:07 am »
I am new to pfsense, so I need an advice for the hardaware I will need to achieve the following.

I will have one office with no more than 20 machines in the LAN and 2 different ISP providing me 100 Mb/s connections over fiber optic with media convertors.

Additionally I have to permanently connect this office with another 2 offices through some VPN, and arrange access for another 10 people that will connect randomly.

Does SG-4860 have enough power to run the failover between the ISPs and the needed VPN connections. Can I go for the cheaper SG-2440?

Thanks in advance

What sort of bandwidth do you need over the VPNs? What sort of VPN?

Do you want to run any packages, Snort, Squid etc?

I would expect the SG-4860 to be capable whatever you were trying to do with 100Mbps max single connection limit though.
