After installing the IBM PRO/1000 PT Quad NIC, I was able to achieve full speeds.
It’s been a while since the last Proxmox project post, and this was because of actually executing the plan – getting all the parts and playing around with it all.
New project in the works. I want to build a computer that runs Sophos UTM and act as my firewall/internal gateway. Sophos would allow me to have greater control in terms of QoS, device management, routing, and security.
How I started
Going into this project, I only had knowledge of building computers, but didn’t know what it meant to build a server. This is the “server” I built from the ground up; I even built the case from sheet metal. This project is where I found my passion and the desire to learn more about the infrastructure environment.
