Intel Corporation Gigabit Network Connection [vmnic2] Intel Corporation Gigabit Network Connection [vmnic0] I’ve seen in one scenario where someone had one of these NICs in hardware pass-thru mode to pfSense and let that guest control the bypass mode operation, however this host lacks the hardware support in the CPU to do full pass-thru, so that isn’t an option. The big advantage to cards like these are that they allow users to add a lot of network ports into a single PCIe slot. They are well supported Intel GB-based cards that are re-branded by Dell and other vendors.
