WHS as a firewall RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently using a dual core server as a firewall, running pfSense. I would like to use this box as a WHS box instead, but still want to use it as a firewall.

    Is this possible through a feature of WHS, or would I need some other program?

  • Not generally possible; Windows Home Server doesn't support the installation of multiple NICs, which you would need to make it an effective edge device on your network. And it's not desirable in any case; your server would be sitting on the edge of your network with all of your (presumably important, at least to you) data.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
