Hi Emmanuel

Welcome to the NethServer community!

You already have a router with two Interfaces (One LAN, the other Internet), as far as I read your post…
Why would you want to put in another box to do the same job as the other box?
It wastes electricity, and produces heat & noise. It is, after all, an old PC, not something efficient like a PCengines board…

It might also help, If you describe what you’re trying to achieve…

I want to be able to remote control my PC from over the Internet.
I want guests to connect to a folder on my PC…

Something simple like that, and we could maybe give good suggestions or pointers… :slight_smile:

My 2 cents

This is very power efficient, completly silent, and costs without casing or power brick 120$, maybe 150$ all included…

That’s BTW what I’m using at home… (OPNsense as Firewall!)
