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

Thanks Vick,

The unit I'm using has two NICs built into the motherboard. One for WAN, One for LAN... IPKVM is shared on one of the ports. I've tried swapping the WAN/LAN IPKVM mapping, still no luck.

So maybe as you said, if I add physical NIC (3rd), then leave the IPKVM NIC free (just hooked up to the network), it would work. I will try to schedule a time to try this.

I've never been able to access the KVM IP address (on a Supermicro
motherboard) from the machine on which it is when they are sharing the NIC. If it has a dedicated KVM NIC then it is accessible.  But that uses up a switch port, so I don't do that.
