Migrating to PFSense

For one of my tech projects during the COVID-19 world quarantine, I migrated to using PFSense as my Home & Home Lab Router. The purpose of this project was to seperate my Home Lab from my Home Network through V-LANs and to also have better Firewall control for my Internet facing services. This has worked out very well and I am happy with the network control and results of this project.

Homebrew Router Specs:

  • Dell OptiPlex 390 (Mini Tower)
  • 500 GB SSD
  • 8GB RAM
  • 1 Gigabit on-board LAN port
  • Intel PCI-E 4 port Gigabit network card.
