So for the community I have some machines I want to plop out on the public internet and be welcoming to ppl opening accts on a few machines and fucking around with them. Idk, maybe someone builds an os on a sparc machine I have open.
Whatever it may be.
But, I obviously need to do that safely. So pfsense to save the day right? But I never really learned what a good set of hardware would even be.
Back when I was screwing with this I had a few pentium 4 boxes running my network. Since then I tore that apart because it was buggy. And even then, I don’t think a p4 is going to keep up in 2019? In 2012 it still could haha.
So, what would be best for this now? Early core i? If I could dump a g5 on this or a mac pro and know it’d run reliably I’d use one of those but idk what even supports g5 machines.
