Hello,

I have the opportunity to snag one of these, and was interested as to if PfSense would be a easy install. I understand parts would be pulling teeth, however I wanted to make sure it was possible before slamming down $60.

if it is an x86 cpu, it should work. seems a bit dated, but the price is right @ 60$

I would spend a bit more and go the gigabyte q1900 route instead
