Working Specialist Platforms
« on: May 12, 2011, 05:41:00 am »
Hi all,

Perhaps a sticky with a list of working hardware which pfsense runs on?
Perhaps mode/admins can continue adding to the list when more hardware instructions become available?

Nokia
IP110 - (external) Instructions
IP330 Instructions
IP530 Instructions

Watchguard
Firebox X500, X700, X1000 and X2500 - Instructions

Firebox X-Peak: X5000, X6000 and X8000 - Instructions

Firebox X-Core-E: X550E, X750E and X1250E - Instructions
          X-Peak-E: X5500E, X6500E and X8500E same hardware as X-Core-E

Symantec
Security Gateway 5420 Instructions

Tools
physdiskwrite + PhysGUI -  (external) Download Page
Instructions on how to use - (external) PDF Download
Image Writer For Windows (win32diskimager) - (external) Download Page - recommended by jimp

Thanks
GE

You might want to re-title this thread 'Working Specialist Platforms' or something similar. Technically 'working hardware' is anything that's on the FreeBSD hardware list. You don't want anyone coming to this thread and thinking they have to use one of these platforms.

I was wondering in the sub categories add the LCD and LED fix? Or is that too much?
Since Steve did so much work on these I think it is worth mentioning and besides - They Work!! (thx)
Best Regards;
H.

I would suggest using Image Writer For Windows (win32diskimager) instead of physdiskwrite for those who like a GUI (in English):

https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/+download

It's easier to use, and hasn't failed me yet.

I've run 1.2.3 nano on the Acrosser AR-B1554. Basically write the card and go.

Hmm,
I just tried to use Win32 Disk Imager but used Physdiskwrite instead.
Two reasons:
Disk Imager doesn't give any information on the drive I'm selecting so I have to check manually to make sure I don't write over something.
Disk Imager won't open Gzipped image files directly so that's an extra step for me.
Am I missing something?

Guess that's not a big deal for me since I know the drive letter of my removable media, and I never trust writing the images from physdiskwrite gzipped anyhow... :-)
