I run pfsense on a cheap desktop dual core CPU 4 GB RAM and 2 nics and a 60 GB HDD .. nothing fancy. Can handle 5 VPN clients connected without any issues
Obviously the more VPN clients the more better hardware, a CPU that supports AES encryption is recommended
bit apprehensive of the reviews recently here, thinking why is the guy selling, bloody nightmare trying to get the right one
I have 3 Pfsenses virtualised. 1 at home, 1 in work lab and one a datacenter. None have more than 1GB of RAM and 1 vCPU and i have never had a problem with any of them.
I think you allocated way too much resources as mine never goes above 50% resource usage.
so i just ignore tplink_archer-c7-v5.bin and use the one you mentioned, why do they stick the 2 together, will do tomorrow
