    Default WAN balancing payment

    WAN balancing and WAN failover must be free or should be a one-time payment.

    Hi ssonbilen and welcome to the forum,

    I don't have the full info here.
    But normaly untangle only sell apps that they need to buy license or code/updates.

    And i know that they hade problems with the WAN failover/Balancer so it think that they bought some tehnology for that.

    So thay have to get $ in some how.
    and the only way the have (before) was montly pay. so i can se how they just added the new packets in the same way.

    But i agree a option for a one-time payment would be nice.

    Default WAN Failover

    Yes , WAN Balacing and WAN Failover should either free or one time payment. I found endian UTM provide free for WAN balacing and WAN failover , even able authenticated through LDAP. very nice features.

    I don't agree that it should be free. However, I do agree that it should be a one-time payment. The world is requesting subscriptions to everything.

    For my customers (SMB & SOHO), they want 1-time purchases.

    Very high prices, $160, ONE SIXTY! for this one:

    Linksys RV042

    vs $540 a year for the Pro package for a 25 node office.

    Needing Dual Wan with Loadbalancing/Failover, along with solid VOIP support, I ended up going with Endian, with Sonicwall as an alternative for a few customers that wanted more features and were willing to pay for it.

    I do check back on Untangle periodically, as it really kicked some rear in a lot of ways, and if it becomes workable in the make or break areas I need (VOIP and Dual WAN) I'll switch back to it.

    Well, and if the price comes down. Sonicwall is cheaper.
