Default PC Engines Alix 2d13 board

Last week I ordered a Alix 2d13 bundle and it arrived last Friday. I installed an OpenBSD snapshot through PXE as described in http://openbsd.org/faq/faq6.html#PXE

For the technical specs of this board see http://pcengines.ch/alix2d13.htm

After fitting the circuit board in the case, it looks like this (the purpose of the pen is only to give an impression of the size):





A view of the rear with the serial port, the 3 LAN ports, 2x USB and the power connector:

For low to medium traffic, these are nice boxen for the price -- especially given that they consume so little power.

It would be nice if the processor was a bit faster, more memory (Alix ships with non-upgradable 256MB RAM...) would be nice, & the vr(4) NIC's (Three can be found in the 2d13... ) are only rated at 10/100. It would be nice if they were 10/100/1000 & capable of supporting VLAN's, but they aren't.

However, as posted on OpenBSD's misc@ mailing list last week:

http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-misc&m=135726085104469&w=2

They can be configured to be nice little IPSec end-points.

I have a number of these systems for various uses (though not as many as in the picture posted to misc@...). Heck, I may even get another one for something else.

I just read http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-tech&m=135813500222353&w=2
It has a patch to allow hardware VLAN tagging for vr(4)
