I have just built a new rig from a bunch of spares I found in the closet and bought a few new disks in order to get a decent size raidz volume. Although I have not yet completed the basic build and configuration I am planning for the next step.
I want to retire my old D-link firwall/router and use the FreeNAS rig for that task too, using pfSenses etc (see http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/secur...l-with-pfsense) using a 2nd NIC on a PCI card for the WAN connection.
Before I go ahead I would like to solicit some input on this, do you see any issues with such a setup? Is it possible to have several jails so that my firewall would not run in the same jail as e.g. miniDNLA?
