Hi, I need some help with setting up my home lab. Want I want to do is to have my PC be able to manage Citrix XenServer, with the VMs on a closed host only network. But I am not too sure how to go about it? Would I need to connect the VM's to a pfsense router VM or can I network the VMs directly in XenServer? Also, would I need to hardwire my XenServer to my PC via a switch to enable management of it on the closed network when my pc communicates directly with the router via wifi? Sorry if this is a bit noobtacular I don't really want to screw this up. Matt
I'm starting a homelab with what modest means I have available. I've started setting up an i5 Intel NUC with Proxmox so that I can virtualize a few small appliances. I have a really small network of maybe 10 devices on a good day, so I think I can get away with what I want to do. I'm wanting to set it up so that I have a pfSense firewall appliance, and a *nix distro running my DNS DHCP server. Both of these roles are relatively light for a NUC running on an i5 with 16GB of RAM. What I would like to know is if anyone else has travelled this path before me, and if so, how did it turn out?
