Hi all,

I'm thinking about upgrading my home network with an inline IDS and or Firewall between my modem and router. My home network curently resembles this:


If I build a box with a couple of Gigabit network cards and add it into the network at the place shown, and install something like pfsense onto it, can I get the box to just function in a bridge mode between the modem and router?

Many thanks all!

That would work.

Have you seen Security Onion? A full IDS distro in a box. Just watch out that you don't end up capturing your traffic going to it while admin'ing it otherwise you create a feedback loop which isn't good.
