However it was not at all straight forward, more like a set of instructions for writing your own driver which is beyond me. The problem with that is that when pfSense moves to a FreeBSD 9 base that will require a new kernel module from whoever produced nittox.
Reply Reply as topic.
Could it possibly make in to pfSense as a package if a pre-compiled binary was used? Product information, software announcements, and special offers.

Hopefully this actually goes somewhere it would be awesome to make full use of the Watchguard devices even if nitroox a separate package or something no built in to FreeBSD.
Well I contacted Cavium by phone today, the lady I talked to was not someone who could help me.
See our newsletter nltrox for past announcements. I am still waiting to hear back from Cavium. Only users with topic management privileges can see it. Is it some kind of API? If what you are saying is the case they will probably just send me some canned letter pretty much saying NO!
Add support for Cavium CNN55XX crypto adapters. 
Is this not the same on FreeBSD? It will never make it into FreeBSD under those conditions. The device has to hook into nitrpx OS in a way that the crypto 9 API understands, or very few if any services will know what to do with it.

Well that would complicate things. That said if you find anything I’m sure there are many people here who would take advantage of it. I don’t hold out much hope but I’ll wish you luck anyway. I myself do not possess any skill to write a driver, I just thought by contacting them that might be able to get the ball rolling and possibly the code and have someone else assist in compiling it or something like that. We tried doing that for a customer and hit the same roadblock.

Here is one of the things I found that mentions the chip; http: Sounds like it would be pre compiled. I think it required that whatever wanted to use the card had to be nitroox coded to talk to the card, but it’s been a while since that all happened.
You would need some sort of fimeware upload style implementation or something like NDISgen. Reply Quote 0 1 Reply Last reply. They will only provide the drivers via some closed method, binary blob or NDA, and usually only after you’ve purchased their SDK.

Well I had told them in the email I am only looking for the driver, I don’t care about their testing boards and stuff. We also believe everyone should be able to afford it. I has seen in a few posts regarding the Watchguard boxes that there were issues with the chip not being supported correctly in pfSense.
I’m sure there would have had to be some licensing change if we had actually wanted to use it anyway. She said she will put me in touch with someone from the Nitrox dept about my request.
I am not expecting them to really give me a lot of information but I sent an email requesting for more information to Cavium.
