    That is a really poor answer, in my opinion (and has always been a poor answer - I fully recognize this isn't anything new).

    Basically you are saying that users can use this function (that is part of a PAID product), but you don't really support it or give any assurances it will work post deployment if you keep it up to date...

    Its not a paid product. If you disagree with our stance. Don't use it. Thats totally fine, in fact if you read that docs, thats what we suggest. Not all technologies you can have in a firewall should be used in all scenarios. Not all apps should always be used. In fact in many scenarios many should not.

    I understand Untangle's stance on this. And you are right - on everything it is up to the end user if they are OK with the semi-supported/non-supported functions or not.
