To begin you need to install Debian 8.1.
Critical step in the installation process.
When the installation process ask for “Some of you hardware needs non-free firmware – the missing firmware files are rtl_nic/rtl8168g-2.fw”, you need to download from Debian Packaged web site package named firmware-realtek (see linkografia), uncompress it to an USB stick (using 7zip for example): after that you can insert USB key in your Acer and continue with installation process.
My choice: Guided – use entire – all file in one partition
My choice: SSH server and standard system utilities
Root SSH Access
You need to permit root user to get via SSH in order to facilitate the configuration steps.
> sed -i 's/PermitRootLogin without-password/PermitRootLogin yes/' /etc/ssh/sshd_config
> service sshd restart
To install the GuruPlug you need:
– JTAG Board
– TFTP server
– Linux Box connected to JTAG via USB (I’ve used Debian 8).
Connect the UART port to the GuruPlug and the JTAG board to your Linux computer.

After some search I’ve found the solution in page “Upgrade Guide-pfSense”: pls see linkografia. Continue reading
