    ScoutIQ does have value, it works much like the Web Filter does with another reputation engine.

    What I was trying to get at was the desire to have that on premise scanner. That thing is just a resource sink.

    Virus Blocker on HomePro has ScoutIQ, that's all you need... that's all most of us need even for commercial application.

    Hmm, I'm a new Untangle HomePro user and this thread has been quite insightful. I've been debating if $108 a year is worth it for Virus Blocker. And I was losing my mind trying to get my Android TV and Android phone to accept the certificate for SSL Inspector. I guess I'll stick with Virus Blocker Lite and remove SSL Inspector. :/

    Install Virus Blocker, it's there... you just don't get the local scanner, you still get ScoutIQ, that's vastly superior to Virus Blocker Lite.

    If you've got the ram to support VB Lite, go for it... but don't expect it to ever catch anything.

    Hi Sky Knight

    Since my Home license is one of the grandfathered ones before the changes to HomePro. Do you recommend even running VB Lite or is VB sufficient ?

    Thanks jcoffin. That's what i have been doing, was just curious. TBH with my new u25x even with it disabled i don't see any difference in network throughput vs with it on.

    The x-series has high PCI channel bandwidth so it takes traffic will . If you have a heavy SPAM traffic, you will start to see a difference.

    Yeah the x-Series should be able to muscle through both Virus Blockers with little impact. The only modules you'll feel are IDS and Spam Blocker.
