Boole is named after George Boole who was instrumental in differential equations and algebraic logic and ultimately leading to Boolean Algebra.

Boole is a 1U Intel Atom machine (Nexcom DNA1110) running pfSense 2.4. The original hard drive used during 447 Hackney Road was replaced with an SSD as it was dead and we wanted a router with as few moving parts as possible.

Boole's purpose is providing routing and network uplink services via its four gigabit ethernet ports. It provides DNS, DHCP, and firewall services to the network.


  • IP:
  • DNS:
  • Access: Internal HTTPS & SSH (Infrastructure Team & Trustees) and externally via non-standard ssh port.


Boole is a Nexcom DNA1110 system with the following:

  • Atom D410 single core dual thread 1.66ghz processor
  • 4 x 1Gigabit Intel 82853V Ethernet ports - One port for building-provided Internet, three ports for internal networking.
  • 2GB of DDR2 667/800 Memory
  • Unused PCI Expansion Port
