I’m really new to the pfSense world however I was thinking about following build:
- Protectli FW6C – 6 Port Intel® i5 with 32 GB Ram and 1 TB drive
Configuring Build to run Pfsense Virtualized using Proxmox. By virtualizing Pfsense it would allow by run to 1-2 additional VM’s on the box.
- Is there a distinct disadvantage to running Pfsense virtualized or should I just install Pfsense directly?
- I’ve read about the long standing dispute between Pfsense/Netgate and vendors such as Protectli which don’t contribute back to the project. Any future concerns in the future with future Pfsense builds not supporting the hardware in the Protectli box?
- If considering virtualizing – any other hypervisors that would be recommended. Looking for SMB with very low costs if possible.
Anything else I might be missing?
