XPenology as hypervisor





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

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




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.
