Yes, thats fine.
The downside is that their traffic doesn't get scanned.
You mean the Public traffic that is the free wifi at the coffee shop won't get scanned, right? This only puts the other people on the Public segment at risk while still protecting my Private clients, right? If this is the case, I really shouldn't care. Does this sound right? Thanks
Edit: sorry about all the rights.
You are right it is as you described it, your private network is Important so protect that

I want to bump this for a follow up question. In bypassing the public subnet, I lose Captive Portal. Is there a way to "reserve" licenses say for my private subnet. If the license count were to exceed the paid amount, only the public subnet would start getting bypassed?
Currently you can't reserve a license. Usually what I suggest is the bypass rule for the other network so that it doesn't count against your licensing however if you were to reboot the Untangle and have the private network pass through the appliance first they would get licensed first and ensure to be filtered as expected. You could also increase your license band then all your traffic would be filtered as expected there.
Thanks. I have the public bypassed but by doing that Captive Portal doesn't work. I'm trying to keep cellphones from auto connecting.
Try the reboot method during off hours when the public network can't eat up your licensing. Again you could just increase your license band and then all would be well here.
Rebooting won't change anything with your licensing or otherwise.
