Software Features

  • Ships with the latest version of pfSense Plus software
  • Not PoE Compatible
  • Ships with your choice of Australian, UK, EU or USA cords. Easily changed by purchasing compatible AC power cord with IEC320-C7 (2 PIN) plug (visual example)
  • Netgate 8200 systems are actively cooled. Take care to avoid any obstructions to the chassis and lid venting.
  • Netgate 8200 systems may be rack mounted with other devices directly above or below the Netgate system. Heat sources placed immediately below or in direct contact with the underside (chassis) of the 8200 system should measure less than 40°C / 104°F surface temperature.

Your purchase includes all of these super neat things, which will help you get started with pfSense Plus software:
