FX Industrial appliances are DIN rail form factor appliances for use in industrial environments where heat, dust, and vibration are a concern. The FX-150 with pfSense features 5 Ethernet interfaces and the pfSense® firewall software.
The FX series of network appliances provide a secure, stable, and flexible networking platform that can be used as a Perimeter firewall, router, VPN, and much more. Enclosed within the industrial DIN rail chassis, the FX-150 is a tough, self-contained system. The FX-150 offers power stations, manufacturing facilities, oil and gas fields, and specialized industrial sites a compact, durable, and easy-to-install solution with support for five Gb LAN ports.
Based on a specialized distribution of FreeBSD and started as a fork of the m0n0wall project, pfSense® is designed for low powered x86 installations, allowing for greater performance with embedded processors. The FX-150 with Intel Atom N2600 and 5-port Gb configuration offers a stable, efficient base for the pfSense® software powering your network appliance. The entire system mounts easily to a variety of surfaces, including DIN rail, desktop, and wall mounted.
- Intel Atom N2600
- 2GB DDR3 Ram
- 4GB CF Card
o Filters by source and destination IP, IP protocol, source and destination port for TCP and UDP traffic
o Utilizes p0f, an advanced passive OS/network fingerprinting utility to allow you to filter by the Operating System initiating the connection.
o Has a highly flexible policy routing made possible by selecting gateway on a per-rule basis (for load balancing, failover, multiple WAN, etc.)
o Allows grouping and naming of IPs, networks and ports. This helps keep your firewall ruleset clean and easy to understand, especially in environments with multiple public IPs and numerous servers.
o Is transparent layer 2 firewalling capable—can bridge interfaces and filter traffic between them, even allowing for an IP-less firewall Offers packet normalization: enabled in pfSense® by default
o Has a disable filter: you can turn off the firewall filter entirely if you wish to turn pfSense® into a pure router
o Has three options for VPN connectivity: IPsec, OpenVPN, and PPTP
o Is a stateful firewall, allowing fine-tuned control of your state table
o Has a helpful reporting and monitoring system that maintains historical information on: CPU utilization, total throughput, firewall states, individual throughput for all interfaces, packets-per-second rates for all interfaces, WAN interface gateway(s) ping response times
o Intuitive Web interface including SSL access
o Console interface (keyboard/monitor) for recovery situations
o Flexible stateful packet filtering: block/pass rules, logging, network/host aliases, NAT
o LAN services: DHCP server, caching DNS forwarder
o WAN support: DHCP, PPPoE, PPTP, Telstra BigPond Cable, DynDNS
o Traffic shaping for maximum throughput and traffic prioritization
o SNMP agent
o SVG-based graphical traffic monitoring
o Support for static routes
o Firmware upgrades available via Web interface
o Configurable backup/restore
