[pfSense] pfsense hardware for a proxy, 1U w/ 12" depth

I can sign that, we often sell those exact systems, and compatibility and stability is not an issue with fpSense.

We often use a 4 ports Intel Gigabit NIC too, and this specific one works with pfSense inbox drivers:

E1G44ET2	Intel Gigabit ET2 Quad Port Server Adapter

The atom processor is not going to route at Gigabit speed, but I have seen around half, with no optimizations made.

Works with VMware (Free) Hypervisor (ESXi) too, and so does pfSense, but you can also get the system with KVM/IP for remote assistance.

I have 2x http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/1U/5015/SYS-5015A-EHF-D525.cfm.
Should fit your depth limitation, I have yet to hit performance problems with it and know that others on the list use this system as well.
