Confgure pfSense security hardware device

I recently purchased a small form factor network appliance built for use as a firewall router and is compatible with a variety of open source firewall projects including pfSense, OpenBSD, VyOS, Security Onion, Linux, and Windows. The device is made by Protectli and is called the Vault. (See details [url removed, login to view] )

I have installed pfSense on the device.

That is all that I have done. I need to have someone configure the device who is familiar with pfSense. I plan on using this between a desktop Windows PC and a router. The router is assigned [url removed, login to view] and the PC gets its IP dynamically from the router.

The network path is as follows:

WAN <--> Cable modem <--> Juniper Networks firewall <--> HP ProSwitch <--> * NEW VAULT DEVICE with pfSense * <--> Windows PC

I want this device to support blacklists from either [url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view]

This device must permit access/use of the following ports:

20-25, 80, 110, 115, 143, 152, 161, 443, 3389, 8000, 8080

If this device is capable of performing malware/anti-virus tasks, then I'd like to learn more about how this is achieved.

I am trying to replace the traditional third-party software firewall such as Norton or Comodo and use a hardware device instead. I would like the device to be able to also block inappropriate web sites (ads, malware, porn) plus perform duties of a malware/anti-virus detector (if possible).

Also, I would like to also be able to block URLs or web searches containing certain keywords.

This device/setup will not be used for perimeter defense. It is simply to filter below the HP ProSwitch. I am using the Juniper Networks firewall device for my perimeter/main firewall.

In short, I need someone to perform basic, first-time setup. I am not certain how the freelancer would perform the configuration however. We will have to discuss this. Perhaps writing up instructions and delivering them to me will work.
