Since the start of the year I've been working as a Technical Consultant at IBM. It's been a great experience, putting a lot of knowledge into practice with enterprise-grade hardware and software. The infrastructure at work is as you would expect with a lot of services and applications that are well thought out and easily to use. I wanted to learn a lot more about all the stuff at work so I came up with the idea to build my own ESXi whitebox at home (we use [VMware ](http://www.vmware.com)at work) to do some self-learning and have fun while doing it. Having a 'homelab' would give me the opportunity to learn a lot more about the stuff I love. This is the build.

pfSense is an open source firewall/router based on FreeBSD. It is more than just however, with the ability to be a DNS, VPN, IDS/IPS, DHCP, NTP and cache (using Squid). Why would you dedicate a full system to pfSense when it can easily run as a virtual machine to provide networking to your entire infrastructure.  This guide will walk you through replacing your current router with pfSense and how to install pfSense on ESXi.

A lot of (the good ones at least) hardware and software give you the ability to send notifications via email when scheduled too or a warning/error occurs. Without having to build and maintain your own mail server, you can use the Google SMTP server as your sending mail server. You will also have the option of having Google store and index the emails you send, so all your sent emails will be searchable and backed-up on Gmail. If you elect to use your Gmail or Google Apps account for your incoming email as well, you'll have all your email in one convenient place. Also, since Google's SMTP server does not use Port 25, you'll reduce the probability that an ISP might block your email or flag it as SPAM.

Web servers are configured to run on port 80 (HTTP) and 443 (HTTPS). pfSense, as a firewall, blocks all incoming connections to your network from the outside world. By opening the 80 and 443 port we are allowing the outside world (Internet) to access applications running on these ports on a local machine - which are commonly web servers. This also allows you to access your personal home server from literally anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Web browsers will by default access websites at port 80 when they are HTTP and port 443 when it is HTTPS e.g. https://calvin.me:443 and http://calvin.me:80 are the same as https://calvin.me and http://calvin.me. This guide will help port forward web servers in pfSense.

VLANs are a great way to separate components of your network and to protect important infrastructure from being messed around by others. By default, traffic between VLANs are blocked by the invisible 'block everything' rule at the bottom of the rules list. Sometimes you want a VLAN where users can just browse the Internet and nothing else. You can also setup rules so that you can access everything but no one can access you. VLAN rules are easy. pfSense makes them even easier.

Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a networking protocol for time and date synchronisation between computers. By default, Windows 7 provides five servers (default being time.windows.com) to synchronise with. Time varies based on network latency however with tens of milliseconds over the Internet and almost one millisecond on LAN. Having a NTP server also reduces the amount of calls to the Internet made by hosts and achieves a better system time for all computers that rely on performance, integration and timeliness. Luckily a NTP server is very easy to build on Linux.
