    So I use OpnSense, and looking for a new Router. think this one would work for a 10gig net? or take a step up on it?

    The problem with pfsense is that support costs are at a level that makes purchasing a support contract a very poor value in the SMB sector – really it applies in the Enterprise as well, because even if you are a very large company, that doesn't mean you need all your routers to be heavyweights.

    The SG-3100 you mentioned would be a typical spec for small branch offices – bigger than needed for very small locations – but the smallest I would source to avoid having too many different spares.

    List on it is $400, which is acceptable.
    The most basic support contract is also $400.
    That's per year, and if you need a support contract at all, you need more than this offers.

    No advanced replacement, so you need to buy spare units.
    No phone support, 24 hour response email support only.

    If you want phone support or a quicker response time than 24 hours, your annual cost goes to $800.

    You're now paying double the cost of the hardware for support – annually.
    Still no advanced hw support.
    Explain to the bean counters why you have to buy an extra unit for every model in every market you operate in.

    Or, you can purchase Enterprise Plus support – for the bargain price of $2988/yr.

    I've run pfsense long enough to be fine with a couple of spares that I can bang a backup config onto and overnight to a remote site.

    But that operating model takes pfsense out of the running for companies that require vendor support contracts on all critical systems.

    That's why I never bought Netgate hardware.

    I can pick up old Dell R210 ii's on ebay with an e3 proc w/ hyperthreading and 32 gig for about $300, throw in a couple of small enterprise ssds and use the zfs install option, and I just tip the scales at the same cost as the 3100, run a free hypervisor and pfsense in a vm, with plenty of unused resources to run a couple of hefty vm's for LOB apps.

    I could go cheaper, but those are relatively compact, and quiet enough for most any location.

    I love this chassis! The 505-203b works a treat for building larger network appliances, at the office we have ~130 of them deployed with C2000 and C3000 boards.
    https://www.supermicro.com/en/products/chassis/1U/505/SC505-203B

    As for the Java remote console, for the longest time the IPMI firmware linked on the system board page was out of data and you had to call to get the Redfish FW.
    It looks like with the recent site overhaul they also updated the IPMI FW links, the HTML5 remote console gets loaded before the O/S on our systems because it's that important.

    Hello Tom, I have been in search for a custom router and come across this one and c3000 series and after my calculations I was not sure it can sustain gigabit on pppoe. It would nice to make a video to test the different scenarios pppoe down, pppoe up, pppoe combined, also with suricata on. tests like iperf, single stream, torrents. I'm the one of the unlucky ones that my ISP offer internet only on PPPOE and for that I have to tackle alot of limitations and problems (hardware & software) that pppoe introduces. Also i would nice to see how much did you loose compared with direct ip routing.

    For the prices I have seen I get get a Dell or HP server for the same price.

    Anyone know of some thin clients that have PCI-E 4x or 16x?

    SuperMicro MCP-220-00044-0N they are about $10 a piece or less and each one will give you 2 x 2.5 mounts, and that case is cable to take 2 of them. So if you use a sdom and m.2 motherboard such as the one from the 5018D-FN8T you can boot from the sdom and still have 5 drives to play with.

    These are great boards. I have 2 of them, one running my pfsense as my home router/firewall and another running my Plex server with a GTX 1660 for transcoding. Both in SM 1U chassis like this one.

    One thing you should have mentioned though was the Intel C2000 bug (AVR54). It will inevitably happen to all Intel C2000 series SOCs that have not been fixed. Something about degraded clock signals that result in the system failing to boot/POST. Cannot be fixed with a BIOS flash or software workaround. It requires a hardware fix from the manufacturer.

    Luckily SM is very good about fixing these even out of warranty. I bought one used on eBay a few months back and SM didn’t hesitate to cross-ship me a new one.

    Judging on the "Intel – FreeBSD" comment around 2:00 – i just lately upgraded to an amd epyc system with no trouble at all. since amd pushes more into the server market with great products, there seems to be a huge development going on to further improve amd support into freebsd based systems.

    WARNING! The onboard NICs do NOT support any TCP offload or anything like that.

    That is my pfSense firewall and it is working fine with Suricata and e2guardian "walled garden". But I really need to add a card to offload some of the network overhead. But my normal processor load at around 100mbps is like 12 percent CPU, when I get up near gigabit the processor is way up around 80 percent. I assume it would be a little lower with a proper network card installed. 8 GB is plenty, but a twist of fate put mine at 24gb. Also note that it requires ECC sodimm memory, I tried putting regular DDR3 sodimm in mine and it would not function. And not many choices for this type of ram.

    I have worked with several of the C2758 systems. You have to be careful as there is a design flaw/bug with the the 2000 series atom processors. Once they fail they are effectively doorstops. Overall it is a great platform for pfsense.

    Would this route at full speed as well if you run a VPN like PIA on some of your clients via pfSense, or does it throttle this down to about 20mbps?

    should be an x10 board. you can update the ipmi firmware to redfish and get html5. i have the same board running pfsense, and updated it. might make a good video if you havn't updated it.

    This board is affected by the clock source issue and should not be used for anything. We replaced hundreds of cisco routers for our client because of this very issue.

    There is an IPMI update that adds HTML5-based remote console. Also, be careful of the clockgen defect in those Atom chips. One of mine failed to that defect, but Supermicro RMA'd bc I bought it first-hand. Getting an RMA if you purchased on eBay might be more difficult.

    I just looked at those systems on eBay. Seems $600 is really steep for an Atom based 1U device like that. I use those same Intel 4 port NICs in my server, 2 of them, nice for having each VM or even separate networks within a VM on their own network cable. With pfSense, UTM9, etc., I like having a physical cable for each network.

    Nice video Tom! One concern I have quite often with old hardware is the power consumption. I think it's interesting to know for how long I can run an old CPU before I can cover the cost of a new low-power 4-port minipc with a Celeron or similar CPU. In Europe you pay about 30 Euro cents per kWh. A low power Celeron consuming 10W, is about 100W more efficient than an old core 2 duo or similar desktop CPU. If such a Celeron box or netgate router cost 200 euros, this would buy you 667 kWh, which can power your core 2 duo for 6667 hours. If my math is correct, in less than 10 months, your new low-power box would have paid itself.
