XG Firewall Home edition on Celeron J1900

Hi All

Apologies if this has been asked before

I have a qotom hardware with 4 Intel NICs running on Intel Celeron J1900 processor. I was running OPNSense on it for many months and wanted to try out the XG Home edition version 18.0.1-396. I tried to install it with both UEFI and Legacy boot and could only boot it with Legacy Boot option. 

Post the boot, after 2-3 minutes, it just hangs and I can't ping 172.16.16.16 and no response on the VGA console. What should I do to fix this issue

Following is the CPU details (installed Ubuntu 18.04 recently)

  • With that CPU you're going to need to disable features on your Firewall rules IPS, or even Traffic AV scanning too depending on how the removal of IPS on your rules works??

    Ive always gone for Intel Core I3 (dual core with HT) min I5 (Dual Core with HT or Quad Core) recommended or I7 (Quad core) best practice those can be Mobile editions too.   If your machine was to be Fast Path Compat then maybe but as far as Ive been able to tell that's Sophos HW realm only??

    Hope that helps IPS can be CPU intensive depending on how your IPS rules are set also but J1900 id think IPS would need disabling to get any decent throughput out XG V18 Home ed.....
