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
  • DHCP Server and Relay functions
  • PPPoE Server

Great Product
This is a great product. I have been working with these for several years. PF sense is a great product as well. We run Alpine Linux and it is fantastic!

Very Reliable
We have about 50 Alix boards deployed on anything from 3G WAN connections to 100mb/s connections.  We have utilized the devices with PFsense, acting as BGP routers, OPENvpn end points, WAPs, and dedicated firewalls.  They work great, so far our only failure was a physical NIC port was damaged, which I believe was caused by a technician.

Really great
We use one of these guys at each of our satellite locations. These are the most reliable little buggers I have ever worked with. Unless more speed is required, these are perfect for the basics.

Just flat out love it!
A netgate m1n1 with pfsense is a dream come true. I have 3 in production so far, and as long as netgate keeps making these, I plan to never buy another brand again. As my client's routers die, I plan to replace all with these. I love how I can piece together exactly what I need. This router will be heavy on VPN, so I add the VPN accelerator, this one needs WIFI, so I add the WIFI card. All that plus reliability I have yet to see in any other router and dual wan, what else do you want?

Excelllent small-medium firewall-router
I already had 2 of these, just received another 8. They all work straight out of the box. Great for small to medium size networks. In remote places and where power is a problem these are a great solution - low power, easy installation.
