pfSense Router

My pfSense router is built out of an old HP 6000 Pro machine, it is configured as follows:

  • Pentium E6300 2.8Ghz (dual core)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 160GB HD
  • Onboard Intel Gigabit and 4 port Intel PCIe Gigabit NICs
    1. WAN Interface – CenturyLink 1gbps FTTH
    2. LAN Interface –
    3. IoT Interface – (internet only)
    4. CCTV Interface – (only access to NVR)
    5. Webserv Interface – (web facing servers)
  • QOS priority on VoIP


I was worried this old machine would be a bottleneck when we upgraded to gigabit service, but this is still performing quite well even at gigabit service speeds.
