    I've been pulling my hair out over this for days! I have a VM, jails on a loopback interface and using IPFW to NAT the traffic. My findings show that it slows to a crawl. I've also tested with PF and it works like a charm. Network speeds within the jail are fine. I've tested this on Vultr...

    Virtual machine for FreeBSD

    Dear ALL Could you please recommend me a virtual machine for FreeBSD? I need to host some small project which will require a dedicated hardware for Linux. Oracle Virtual Box, IMHO - quite slow and heavy. The project doesn't require any GUI staff. Thanks in advance
