Damn no pfSense for the Banana Pi router

Not on their download page. Guess OpenWrt will have to do then. To cheap to build a power hungry AMD computer. And it wouldn't fit on my desk as well as the Banana Pi.

In 2014 somebody tried running pfSense in linux using qemu. Looks like a pain, why not support ARM?

You can get FreeBSD 11 for ARM.

Intel NUC could probably run Ubuntu and pfSense at the same time. But I'd have to find my USB 3.0 gigabit ethernet adapter. And I'd need a USB 3.0 hub. That is if I want to use my card reader.

Anker® 3-Port USB 3.0 HUB with 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Converter (3 USB 3.0 Ports, A RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Port, Support Windows XP, Vista, Win7/8 (32/64 bit), Mac OS 10.6 and above, Linux) would do the trick, I think I paid more for the gigabit USB 3.0 adapter I have. Yup 38 bucks.
