    Default Hardware Recommendation New Build - X33 J1900 Mini PC

    Do you think this box would be capable of running with a 1GB internet connection? Also do you think it will bottleneck when running OpenVPN or IPSec? I've seen a bunch of posts about the south bridge not being fast enough causing bottlenecks with VPN traffic.

    It says the nics are Intel(R) PRO/1000

    If you want gig with Untangle I would go for an I3 Processor, but when rolling your own the only way to find out if it does what you want is to try it, If you want something with out trial and error go for a dedicated appliance, for example NEXGEN who really know what they are doing

    For the price 600mbps isn't horrible, I'd be using this in small offices 4-10 people. Right now I'm using an old atom that wont push over 100mbps. Do you happen to test the VPN, do you remember what kind of performance you were getting? Did you happen to test anything with the J1800? Also when you say i3 what generation are we talking about here, seems I can find a bunch of 4th generation i3-4005U Processors with intel nics within the same budget. I get that it will have to be tested to make sure, but I'd like to get as much info as I can before I start sending out the money

    Have you tested vpn yet? Do those nics support vlan?

    Would it be a good idea to throw some intel nics in a current server and use untangle in Hyper-V or am I just asking for trouble not having a dedicated appliance?

    I never tested VPN speed on j1900 sorry, and why get 600 if you pay for gig right?

    If you have the server and are willing to try it out then why not, If you have the funds for a dedicated appliance that is the best way to go check these out

    VLANs are not hardware dependent since they are interfaces constructed in software.
