Alix 2d13 - adding USB storage for use with PFSense
« on: April 04, 2012, 06:01:14 pm »
Hello, before I ask my first question on this forum I'd like to thank everyone involved with pfsense for this great BSD-powered firewall.

So, I have a 512M CF card and the Alix embedded device. I will get a larger CF card soon, but in the mean time I noticed 88% of the card is in use. The device is not able to boot from USB so out of curiosity I wonder...

  • Can I use the USB storage if I specify the USB device in loader.conf, vfs.root.mountfrom?
  • Apart from this - can I use the USB device as extra storage? I would like to play a bit with snort, dansguardian and squid.

Thanks for helping.
