pfSense and unTangle on HP Microserver

Recommended Posts

craig2432

This is my first post here on HSS, so please be nice. My question is, would it be possible to run pfsense and WHS2011 on a Microserver. I would of couse upgrade the ram to 8 GIG and install a dual port NIC.

 

The server would only be used to stream DVD's Bluerays and store photo's. No transcoding.

 

Any help would be gratefully accepted.

In a virtual mode, yes. In my opinion, resources such as your firewall and router (untangle and pfsense) need to be separated from other nodes on the network. If they router/firewall goes down, you have no remote access to the network.

I'm another one who likes to run his firewall/gateway/router/UTM on its own hardware, just so it is able to keep running no matter what happens to other machines on the LAN. Geek Accountant, OTOH, does a lot of VM'ing for his pfSense/Untangle installs AFAIK.
