I have a Zotac CI327 and due to PfSense is still using freeBSD 11.2. I can’t install PfSense till they release Verson 2.5. because of ASE-NI. Is there a workaround or similar software?
How is this preventing you from installing PFSense exactly?
Linux will probably work better with that realtek nic. (It’s a realtek 8111 chipset, right?)
Causes a kernal panic. I would have to try again to get exactly what happens but it has to do with the HPET (High precision event timer) and the apollo lake architecture.
Yes. I believe so. Is there a linux equivalent to PfSense?
I tried to install both 2.3.5 and 2.4.3 same error in both
This issue is fixed in freeBSD 12 but that won;t be implemented in PFSense till version 2.5
I hear opnsense is it, but personally I’d just use Debian or Arch and wouldn’t bother with the web uis.
+1 for just using vanilla debian as your router os.
I tried ubutu server and wasn’t to impressed with the configuring network.
I had this issue. I was stuck on 2.3.5
What have you tried to resolve this issue?
Some have had luck with following this
Opnsense is a fork of pfsense. ipfire is a Linux firewall. Being LInux, it has support for more modern hardware like wifi and such.
I haven’t been able to get that far currently. For the first time I finally got in to the installer, by enabling safe mods. I was able to get it installed but know I am getting sdhci_pci0-slot0: controller timeout.
UPDATE. pfsense 2.4.4 released yesterday and my issue is solved. They updated to freeBSD 11.2 and now it supports Apollo lake. Thanks for the suggestions and help
