I have started to install everything via PXE because it's just too convenient, but pfsense is eluding me.
Using pxelinux and label pfsense menu label Install pfSense kernel memdisk initrd iso/pfSense-LiveCD-2.0.3-RELEASE-i386-20130412-1022.iso.gz starts to run, but then fills the screen with binary gobbledegook. Not too surprising on a system with 256MB RAM. There is http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?/topic,4185.0.html but its main reference is to http://tenzen.dnsalias.net/soekris which was said to be excellent, but was on a home box for 6 months in 2007 and the guy put in a robots.txt preventing archive.org access. Not useful... The only relevant info I can find on pfsense.org is http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/NetBoot_Embedded_(soekris) Essentially it sets up a PXE boot of boot/pxeboot and changes the pfsense install media files to mount an NFS filesystem to boot from, if I read it correctly. This solution has the downside that my DHCP server is pfsense, which doesn't allow to give per-host DHCP options like specifying the file to load and run. It can only be done globally, and there I configured pxelinux because it does everything else for me. (Correct me if the pfsense DHCP server can serve options like filename or root-path on a per-host basis.) Is anyone able to tell what the pxelinux menu.c32 options should be to start the pfsense installation, by whatever means? I'd prefer ftp, but nfs if must be (it's a pain, basically). Are there other instructions I have missed?
