    Default Intel NUC's that can run Untangle for business

    Hi all, not that I have anything against the hardware that Untangle sells but just exploring other options. I have been tossing around the idea of giving a client the firewall for free and make it up on the service. To make that profitable the hardware needs to be in the few hundred dollar range.

    I read through this form and see people using old PC's and such. Can anyone recommend an inexpensive NUC or similar hardware that would run Untangle for business? Preferable something where the memory / drive space can be upgraded for larger installations?

    If you don't mind paying for the best, Lanner is the way to go. Not necessarily the "most capable" but definitely the most reliable per unit. They are Atom C2xxx based so they have an odd tendency to keel over after a couple of years:

    If you want the highest capability and can handle occasional DOA hardware, the best would be these. The highest performance you can fit into a little box at an affordable price with a 2 year replacement warranty. Also, the WiFi works in Untangle 14:

    Qotom is "ok" but I stopped using them for anything after I ordered a batch of 5 and they all died in a 9 month window. The "one year" warranty was only honored on 2 of them... because the other three weren't worth it. Did I mention that Qotom only covered shipping for the first unit, the second one was a sweet $100 to return?

    I went and found a better company that would drop ship warranty replacements via amazon if something went wrong. Plus the hardware is simply more reliable over a much greater range of uses.

    If you're buying Qotom hardware, make sure you buy it from Untangle direct (their X series) since they'll handle the warranty claim when it breaks. And it's way cheaper to ship it back to Untangle than it is to send it to China.
