  1. So ive ben able to get PIA up and selective routing setup with firewall aliases. I still cant figure out routing between the 2 subnets. DHCP is giving out DNS address, and for the PIABypass subnet, and for the PIATraffic subnet. Gateway and Firewall stuff in the spoiler below I'll just keep looking at guides and plugging in firewall rules......I had routing between subnets working at one point before I did a factory reset lastnight and got the selective VPN routing working.
  2. .................................Window's getting in the way again.....Defender's Firewall was blocking pings from foreign subnets........... SO I can: -Ping everything -move files between subnets -access the internet from subnets -connect to PIA I cant (just getting to this and still reading): -rout thought the "PIA VPN" Connection to the internet (the network was renamed to "PIA_NET" diffirentialate between "PIA_VPN") -restrict all internet traffic from the "PIA_NET" through "PIA_VPN"
  3. I did a factory reset and added the 2 extra networks. Gave them DHCP servers, and set pass rules to and from each network: LAN PIA MAN WAN I haven't touched anything else? What should I do next? I can get internet on all LAN's and can ping the other LAN interfaces but I cant ping any clients in the LANs. LAN : CAN reach the internet and ping opnsense MAN and PIA interfaces. CANNOT ping any computer on MAN or PIA MAN : CAN reach the internet and ping opnsense LAN and PIA Interfaces. CANNOT ping any computer on LAN or PIA PIA : CAN reach the internet and ping opnsense LAN and MAN interfaces. CANNOT ping any computer on LAN or MAN I feel like all my firewall rules are redundant except the copied default rule? What am I missing? I havent had a more complicated setup than a Netgear or Linksys WIFI router? So im a bit out of my dept.
  4. im going to fire up 3 more unmanned switches to ditch the vlans, and start over from the beginning. If i get things working like i want it, I'll move it to the L3 Switch . Im not completely sure my switch config isnt the problem.
  5. @jj9987 i think that's what he ment by flash, i could be wrong tho. I would just look for a tiny usb 3.0/3.1 flashdrive....... PS Sandisk has been disappointing me with there failure rate lately.......
  6. The 4 pin is good for ~150w, the i3 8100 is only a 65w chip....you could overclock and be fine.
  7. So im trying to set up OPNsense with 3 LANs, a gateway, a vpn, and 4 interfaces. bce0 - WAN : DHCP from cable modem : will soon be upgrading to gigabit internet, currently just 300/75 bce1 - LAN : : TV's, Roku's, "Smart" devices, WIFI 1 bce2 - PIA : : Servers, Desktops, Laptops, Cell Phones, WIFI 2 bce3 - MAN : : Switches, IPMI (ILO, DRAC, BMC), UPCs, Tape Library I want every device accessible to each other but..... PIA should only be able to access the internet via VPN LAN - WAN MAN - no internet access, I can get the interfaces configured and DHCP working on all the networks, but when it comes to the firewall im completely useless. I've been using pfSense guides and just general poking around to get this far. Opnsense's firewall is a lot different than pfSense's, and ive always just let the firewall do it own thing in the past with a simple 2 interfaces 1 WAN, 1 LAN config, with NAT. All the guides like to post the firewall rules like so: IPv4 * LAN net * * * * Default allow LAN to any rule and i dont understand the syntax , or they tell you to use manual NAT and copy the entries to the other interfaces. When i switch to manual NAT all entries are gone. Any thoughts on how I should set up the firewall???? The modem can do NAT, do i need it on Opnsense? Or how to connect the PIA-VPN to the PIA network only and still have access to the rest of the LAN's. Ive gotten the VPN connected in Opnsense just not to a network. Let me know what you whan screenshots of..............
  8. Yeah everything should work fine as long as you use regular ram. Not ecc. Everything by intel that isn't a Xeon is non-ecc. You could put a Xeon in there and use ECC. Non-ecc ram will fit in a ECC board, just took some out of a supermicro X8DAH-+F to replace with 48gb of ECC.
  9. HAHAHAHA even their old stuff is reliable! i've got a 5 year old FX9370. Still rock solid at 4.9ghz.
  10. The Gigamon GIGAVUE-2404's are only $75, so I thought it might be a super cheap solution. If its just monitoring then I'll have to look somewhere else. L2 would work, L3 would be better. I currently have a pfSense server as gateway + all the normal router stuff at the top of my rack and a PowerConnect 6248 doing all my switching. The 6248 has 2 dual 10gbe uplink modules that i've been using for my fiber connections. I've come to the point that I need more 10gbe ports. My options are stacking 3 6200's (i have 3 6224's) to get 2 more ports. I would need; (all on ebay) another uplink module and transceivers = $75 for XFP - $125 for SFP+ and ~$20 for transceivers a stacking module = I have 2 and would need a 3rd $13 4x CX4 cables $10each ($40) At the cheapest and ignoring the cost of transceivers because i have to buy them either way: $128 I won't ever use all 48 1gbe ports I have now, so 2 extra switches with 0 1gbe ports populated seams like a waste. I've rounded up to $200 for cost of complexity. The closest i've come is QUANTA LB6M. I don't quit have that in my budget this week, but im aiming for something under $300. The problem I come in to when searching is what to look for. I dont know and 10bge switches, so i end up searching for "sfp+ switch" or "xfp switch" and digging through all the 1gbe switches with 10gbe uplink and SAN switch until i get to the good stuff. If I search 10gbe switch I get flooded with 10GBASE-T switches, but i do it both ways. @beersykins L3 preferred but L2 is acceptable. I'm trying to keep it less than $300. Edit, forgot to mention the workload. VM's - 2 hosts vLAN's iSCSI + everything in a home network with 3 power user and 2 normal users, +3x possible 4k stream (from LAN and WAN) +prep for the fiber thats supposed to be going down in my neighborhood
  11. im looking for a 10gbe fiber switch and ebay has some Gigamon GIGAVUE-2404's for really cheap. Are these switches? Or something else? Gigamon's documentation is confusing. I know there "Traffic Visibility Nodes", but can they be configured as a L2 or L3 switch? Ive got about 10x 10gbe fiber connections, I can get away with 8 untill I get a 2nd blade for it.
  12. Im using Ubuntu server. I managed to figure out the DNS. Instead of declaring it in the interfaces file, I declared it in resolved.conf.
