Netgate m1n1wall 2D13 black 


The ALIX.2D13 system board is out of stock until late OCTOBER 2014.  We suggest ordering the next generation APU2 or APU4 which are in stock, as a replacement for the m1n1wall at this time.   You are also welcome to place a back order for the m1n1wall, which will ship in late OCTOBER.

The AMD Geode LX800 CPU featured on this system will EOL in 2015.  For this reason we highly recommend you purchase the APU2 or APU4 system instead, which is the follow on modern multi-core replacement CPU/system with Gigabit ethernet NICs.

Software Features:

The m1n1wall arrives pre-loaded with pfSense software. 

pfSense is a free, open source firewall and router platform based on NanoBSD / FreeBSD that includes most all of the features of expensive, commercial firewalls. This next generation pfSense stateful firewall for embedded applications supports:

  • In place upgrades. No need to disassemble your system in order to upgrade, patch or add packages to your CF.
  • Multiple firmware support. Two partitions on the CF, each with their own separate pfSense install means you can test upgrades and rollbacks without impacting your production environment.
  • Ports and package support. FreeBSD packages that are suitable for an embedded platform can be installed and used.

pfSense provides a software packaging system which allows for the extension of functionality beyond its extensive core feature set. Core features include:

  • Stateful firewall based on OpenBSD pf
  • Captive portal with MAC filtering, RADIUS support, etc.
  • NAT support
  • Load balancing
  • VPN: IPsec, OpenVPN, PPTP
  • Dynamic DNS client
