    Default Intel X550-T2 Network Adapter

    Anyone know if the Intel X550-T2 will work with untangle? Also does untangle support 10G connections?

    It's "probably fine". Unless someone else can confirm or deny, we really can't. But if it's an Intel card, I'd bet $5 USD you'll be good. Of course this is just an assumption and I'd prefer someone who's tried it to chime in, but we use Intel/multi-port NICs in our hardware as well. Also, the OS supports 10gbps now (our z20 box has SFP+).

    Great. Do you know if 15.1 is based on debian buster 10.3 or 10.4? I believe after 10.2 it has the driver built in, but 10.3 fixed some issues.

    I would NOT simply enable the "Allow SSH" rule, it opens the port on the WAN, as well.

    As shown, my custom "Allow HTTPS Admin, restricted" rule is not enabled, unless I need it.

    I would actually suspect it will not work, and if it does it won't be optimal.

    I have a web server based on Debian 10.4. The IXGBE module in on that server is running version 5.1.0, the driver download page for X550-T2 here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/dow...?product=88209

    Note the oldest version is 5.3.4... The most current Debian you can get that's released is below that. You're likely going to have to compile and replace the IXGBE module to make the card work, and you'll wind up having to do this with every kernel replacing upgrade until such time as Untangle is based on Debian 11.

    I do NOT recommend you do that... it's a ton of work.

    Wonder why the driver was never perfected. The card has been out since 2015 and you would think server based cards in the Linux world would be further along?

    It's based on the commitment of Intel to develop the driver.
