XPenology as hypervisor

Question

Hi,

 

Is it possible to install XPenology on a physical server and use phpvirtualbox to run a VM with pfsense on it and let pfense be my firewall.

I would have to bridge both my network cards on hypervisor level so that the physical box would get internet aces through the pfsense VM.

 

Thnx in advance

I think it is possible, but my advice is to have one more NIC for maintenance purpose for Xpenology/DSM only.

Here are the stats that i would be running my XPen setup on:

 

q1900-itx

8 GB RAM

1,5 TB HDD. ( I have 1 TB disk and 1 500 GB disk, what would be a good RAID setup, any advice?

 

I am currently running the following setup;

Installed ProxMox on the bare metal server. Using a pfsense VM as my firewall. Bridged both my network cards in /etc/network on the bare metal server to the pfsense VM, so that 1 ethernet card is my WAN and the other network card is my LAN.

 

I would like to have the same setup only use XPENology on the beare metal server and pfSense as a VM (with phpvirtualbox)that would act like my firewall. How can i bridge my network cards in XPENology?

 

Thanks in advance.
