Hi,

If you don't reqiure custom modifications all the time, no different
user access to the interface etc. you could just create the pf.conf
and use it on an OpenBSD installation (this is what I use, other BSDs
may be fine too). It wouldn't need as much RAM as pfSense.

However, this wouldn't help with the throughput limits.
