Hi,

I want to build a small cheap pfsense firewall to have a play with.

Anyone got a small thin client type machine with either two 100MBps network interfaces or 1 and a PCI slot?

Alternatively, a mini itx / pico atx based system.

I want to get something with a low power draw, so not a small form factor PC.

Thanks,

Kim

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you.

How much do you want to pay? If you're not looking for a super cheap 2nd hand system you can pick up some great value systems for even under US$100 on aliexpress

Have a look at those mini itx Supermicro Atom boards. low power draw but have good quality Intel NICs.

If it is just to play with/test it might pay to install it as a virtual machine if you have an ESXi running already.
