    Hi,

    I’m just wondering if the espressobin is a good candidate to build an all-in-one router + gateway + wifi AP + NAS box.
    The ports (sata/LANx2 + WAN) seems to suggest it, but I have doubts about performance and software.

    I think the Topaz Switch will not be a bottelneck for net/lan traffic, but will the CPU be fast enough for firewall and routing (home usage)?
    And during big file transfer (with samba), there will be enough CPU and bandwith for routing/firewall/traffic?

    My needs:

    • DHCP server
    • WIFI acces point (using pci-e wifi card) or external NETGEAR/D-LINK AccePoint
    • Firewall
    • USB 4G dongle (or 4G router in bridge mode)
    • xDSL modem, connected on the wan port
    • router/gateway: possibility to route internet traffic to 4G or xDSL, depending on source IP or destination port
    • samba server
    • transmisison + sickrage
    • TV-Headend server

    Is there a mature enough distribution working on the espressobin (debian, ubuntu…) thaht will meet my needs?
    Thanks

    Hi Mika

    My needs are similar to yours:

    WAN connection (xDSL modem, connected on the wan port)
    WAN2 connection (backup? USB 4G dongle (or 4G router in bridge mode))

    Firewall + IDS + SNORT
    DHCP server
    router/gateway: possibility to route internet traffic to 4G or xDSL, depending on source IP or destination port

    WIFI acces point (using pci-e wifi card) or external AccessPoint
    LAN connection

    samba / OMV / NAS [b]ligth[/b] server

    but not a media/headless server
    transmisison + sickrage
    TV-Headend server

    the reason is that i want to make sure that the prime functions (routing + FW) always work while the secondary functions might flood the connection / CPU.
