So im replacing my current desktop chassis pfsense box using a core2 duo for a rack mounted 1U w/ quad or low power dual
Previously I was running suricata only over one port, but when i loaded pia & OVPN for remote i started running into performace issues. I dont think it was cpu, due to my cpu not going over 50% BUT>>> gui would lock up.
So after a good amount of price searching these are the three boards w/ soldered cpu’s im looking at:
If I would redo my pfsense I would probably use some old x64 laptop around 50-100usd from craigslist.
my zbox cl321 is nice but there is some advantages in a laptop like built in peripherals and power backup.
