Not sure how much experience you've had with FreeNAS, but because
it's heavily based on the m0n0wall project code, (and user
conventions), I've tried giving it a whirl- and wanted to mention it
when I spoke on m0n0wall/pfSense.
I didn't mention it, because on several *very different* x86
machines, I had serious issues getting it to boot cleanly- let alone
serve data- so I've shoved it into the 'beta' stack in my brain.
I could have made some foolish mistake, but I tried this on different
locations, with current disk images several months apart- same cruddy
I'd LOVE to hear if anyone has had any good experiences with
FreeNAS... It seems to be a great drop-in solution for network data
storage, just like m0n0wall and pfSense.
