A Class Product
« on: January 25, 2011, 08:55:04 am »
Finally found the best Hardware Firewall solution (Previously used Smoothwall and Monowall) won't be looking back.  Been using this solution (PC) since November and monitor forum on a regular basis,found the information excellent. 
I was contemplating on buying an ALIX System but after reading the forum I decided to purchase a Firebox on ebay the other day.  Can't wait to receive it. I also got the book for Christmas.

Thanks again.

Firebox is an excellent platform for pfSense.  Can't believe Watchguard will charge actual money for enabling more than 3 NICs!!!

I've pfSense'd an X700 with more RAM and a 2GB CF card, used for captive portal & VPN gateway - works brilliantly!

I only can confirm

I am a sysop for a small factory in Thailand and I have to use old hardware (386 !). The previous hardware was only able to support pfsense 1.2.2 (because of a memory mapping problem and how BSD is handling the memory) and it was working fine for over 1 year without a glitch. I encountered a problem when we switched to google apps (from exchange) as I needed a rule to allow the non internet users to get their mail ... and voila the V2 beta 5 is doing the trick!!!

I did have to change the hardware : i got a newer (! year 2002) 386 board with 700something megabyte of ram and 40 gig harddisk, 2 nics and a cd player. It works great for a group of about 25 users of which 4 users are heavy internet users and about another 5 normal internet users. All have email accounts and antivirus installed.

Thanks team ... you are making a great product! (and my life easier)
