I'd like to use an old HP ProDesk for a Sophos XG Home setup.
It only comes with the standard NIC.
There are 3 slots for NICs, which NICs are compatible?
I'd like to get 3, something like this?
the NICs will work but not recommended. Preferably intel and not 219.
You could buy a dual card and single card. Check MSY or similar.
In reply to rfcat_vk:
I can't seem to find anything Intel on MSY?
However I did find these on ebay:
Would they do the job?
In reply to Martin Murray:
MSYnlooks like it slipping in quality products. Another supplier is CPLonline.
Those ebay ones will do the job perfectly.
I ordered the ebay ones, should do the job nicely :)
I'll post back when I've installed Sophos XG Home.
Those ebay adapters didn't fit sadly, the brackets were much taller than the computer's plus the socket on the motherboard wouldn't fit.
So I've returned them and the search begins again!
The motherboard has 3 x PCI Express x1 slots and 1 x PCI Express x16 slots.
The computer is an HP ProDesk 400 G2 SFF Business PC.
try scorptec or CPLonline or pccasegear and make sure the supplied devices come with half height mounting kits.
Finally got the 3 intel nics from cplonline and installed today :)
I've installed the XG Firmware but I'm stuck.
See attached pics.
1. It will not recognise the internet no matter which nic I use.
2. I can't exit, when I press ZERO it just brings me back to the main menu.
I'm obviously missing something?
If this should be in a separate thread let me know.
at this stage stay with this thread. If you issues go on for longer then pease start a new thread.
Did you have the two interfaces you wish to use active and did you get asked a question in the installation process about the interface. Make sure you do the initial configuration in router mode.
I only get the screens I posted in the Dropbox link I posted.
There's a LAN and WAN screen but only 2nics are showing in the setup.
The trouble is I don't know which NIC they're talking about.
I tried all 4 but none of them recognised the WAN connection.
I couldn't open the dropbox which I could just now.
Ignore the password request, you do that in the GUI as part of the setup.
My experience on identifying NICs is similar to what you are experiencing. Try the last two NICs as being the active ones.
Don't worry about the WAN connection just yet, concentrate on getting into the GUI setup screen which will be in your case the https://192.168.0.1:4444 (from memory that is what you changed your default XG address to).
How are you testing which interface is alive, using a switch?
Your WAN interface will not work, there is no mask, also not sure where the 22.214.171.124 address comes from, seems a little strange?
Finally got into the web interface, took some time to get registered as ublock origin was blocking it :(
Many, many thanks for all your help :)
