Pfsense 2.0 on Nortel Contivity 1600
« on: February 29, 2012, 04:07:41 pm »
I made a small guide for those who want to install Pfsense on a Nortel Contivity 1600.

  • Open up the unit and connect a CD/DVD drive
  • Unscrew the motherboard and connect a keyboard and a monitor
  • Boot Pfsense (i386) and install it on the hard drive (replace it with a quieter is recommended)
  • Configure LAN with an interface and IP-adress (very important!)
  • Fasten the motherboard, the PCI-cards and boot the unit and start using Pfsense!

I could not post in the "Working specialist platform" thread, but maybe a notice in there could help others.
