Michael Deats Posted June 21, 2010 Share Posted June 21, 2010 Hi guys, My current network consists of this: DLink 4 Port DSL router/Switch, media player, one desktop and a laptop. Now I've gotten a DLink 4400 switch (24 port) and a Dell GX280 from work.. Now I'm thinking of deploying the dell as a pfsense firewall but I'm wondering how my network should change to accommodate it, and whether I need to get an extra NIC or would I just be able to run it with one? With two NICs, the topology should look something like this right? PFsense -> Router PFsense -> Switch Media Player, PC and Laptop -> Switch with PFsense as gateway Would it be possible to do it with one NIC like this? Router -> Switch Pfsense -> Switch Media Player, PC and Laptop -> Switch with PFsense as gateway Also, the Dell doesn't have a cd-rom, does anyone know of any method other than that to load PFsense? I've googled around a bit and it doesn't seem to be possible? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
