    Firewall/Router for SMB site to site VPN

    Thanks, Kevin. I only have about 450 users at my school. I think there are pros and cons to having one vendor for your entire network stack. Fortinet seems worth considering. I'm doing a demo on Friday and they will give me a free firewall to test out.

    Firewall/Router for SMB site to site VPN

    It seems to be going fine, no issues. VPN works as expected. The VAR that installed it takes care of the technical aspects. The customer complains about the support cost, but thy do not have their own IT, so they need the help. Fortinet does very well with SMB and education. I am not sure how cost effective their WAP's are, but they seem to be a nice end to end solution.

  5. Hi, having the same issue running * HP Microserver Gen8 * HPE Customized Image ESXi 6.5.0 Update 2 version 650.U2.9.6.8 released on September 2018 and based on ESXi 6.5.0 Update 2 Vmkernel Release Build 9298722. * all Storage on HP Raid Following procedure... - Uninstalled the hpvsa 5.5.0-102 - Installed the hpvsa 5.5.0-88 (- DID NOT esxcli system module set –enabled=false –module=vmw_ahci ) - Rebooted ...ended up in: Boot failed with error "Two filesystems with the same UUID have been detected. Make sure you do not have two ESXi installations" After overriding this issue, i was glad that the system booted again, but all changes seem somehow reverted (Driver Verison: hpvsa 5.5.0-102) Did anyone test Driver Downgrade on HPE Customized Image ESXi 6.5.0 Update 2 ? Do you think disabling module=vmw_ahci should solve my problem and is worth a try ? mcgrog: Do you think the performance issue should not be present in HPE-ESXi-6.5.0-Update2 any more? Thanks for your sugestions, Manfred

    RESET 66 - Unifi

    The main reason I'm looking at the UDM Pro (when it is released) is because of the larger hard drive option for Unifi Protect. Rack mount capability is ok, but until the UDM Pro is released, there simply is no other way to get more than 5 GB for the Unifi Protect NVR. The current Cloudkey+ is sweet, you can remove the built-in 1 TB drive and replace it with a 5TB drive without any tools (nice carrier tray), but it is still a single spinning drive and a laptop grade 2.5". The UDM Pro accommodates a larger 3.5" drive - but still a single spindle. With the more powerful processor on the UDM and UDM Pro, and the linux base, they could certainly port or add parental control software at some point. Don't know if they are considering that, but it certainly would make sense if they want to be a complete consumer/family network solution. A discussion for another day, but the Unifi Protect camera system is truly in a class by itself. I agree the cameras are not cheap (cheap like the WyzeCam for $25), but other than the Unifi 4K camera (awesome video, but way overpriced) the rest of the Unifi cameras are reasonably priced ($80 to $200 approx) given they are PoE, outdoor rated, and include a wealth of mounting options just like the AP's. Looking at them compared to Wyze, Logitech, Arlo, and other gadgets, they are certainly more expensive, but when you look at the whole Unifi Protect product (NVR box, mobile, web, AppleTV apps), and features (continuous local recording, no monthly fees, alerts, motion clips in addition, RTSP interface options) you can only get there with much more expensive legacy CCTV products that have software that looks and runs like it was written in 1980's. I saw my neighbor running around their house with a ladder very upset. I asked what he was doing and he said they were leaving on a trip and forgot the change the batteries in all their cameras so he was trying to get it done before they had to leave. I know battery cameras are easier to install than PoE, but for a realistic security solution, I, and most of the consumers-not-geeks I know, do not want to be running around with a ladder changing batteries all the time. 🙂

    RESET 66 - Unifi

    Great post and follow up of this podcast. I've chatted about it before but that is exactly what I did for the Ring setup. I realized there was a problem and used the Unifi setup to create a special 2.4Ghz SSID just for the doorbells. I haven't had an issue since. I hope that the UDM is successful but I don't have high hopes for it unless they get it into some hands of influencers. Perhaps we has users can adopt it to our friends and family networks to get the word out and sell some units. I heard about UDM Pro and that it is a Rackmount unit. I can't wait to get mine fired up and take advantage of having all that extra information and try USG for the first time. I do think I'll miss some of the parental control options I have used in the past though. If all else fails I still have Gryphon, Untangle, and Synology RT2600ac laying around. You brought up a good point about bandwidth that I had in my notes yet didn't mention. Spot on with the throughput. It's a shame the USG doesn't have anything more to give but nice to see UDM at Gig speed on paper. Thank you for your post. Always nice to hear from you guys that are so knowledgable and talented on this stuff. That goes for about 99% of this forum! I still learn every day from you guys.

    RESET 66 - Unifi

    Hey Dave, A few things that might help and others: Haven't used the UDM yet (I'm waiting for the UDM Pro which is still in final beta), but... My understanding is that you can restore a CloudKey controller backup to the UDM built-in CloudKey. Personally, in your configuration, I wouldn't physically reconfigure and move coax feeds and equipment. I would install the UDM in the basement replacing existing gear with just a simple cable swap. Sure, you're wasting the built-in AP, but everything else is much more straightforward. Theoretically, you should be able to restore your cloudkey backup, and have almost the same network up and running in just a few minutes. Then you can start deconstructing or reconfiguring more at your leisure rather than necessity of getting the network up and running for the entire household with no downtime 🙂 In your review of your existing setup, IMHO, the primary benefit of Unifi, even more than the wide choice of physical AP units and mounting options, is the extensive configurability and monitoring/status options. You kinda touched at this towards the end of the podcast, but the ability to limit the radio power, turn off the auto settings, and assign the Wi-Fi channels (especially the crowded 2.4 GHz frequency) to non-overlapped channel numbers is a big win for anyone trying to fix dead spots or avoid buying extra AP's as a "brute force" solution to solving coverage. (Not that there is anything wrong with that; sometimes spending $100 on an extra AP instead of spending hundreds of dollars of time and effort to tweak, is the right choice.) It wasn't clear that you are full exploiting the Unifi flexibility to fix your Ring camera/doorbell problems. First thing I usually do with a Unifi setup is to create a 2.4 GHz only SSID and enable it only on the AP radio that is physically the right unit for the Doorbells (or any IoT device that only supports 2.4GHz) to connect. Overriding the autoconnect/automatic behavior in Ring and other devices and forcing the connection to a specific AP solves almost all the Wi-Fi problems with these and similar devices that have somewhat dumb Wi-Fi firmware or less than ideal reliability. It's worth the trouble to re-program the SSID inside the Ring or other device and the results are much better than just having multiple AP's hoping they are in range. I'm really curious whether the UDM will be successful in bringing Unifi to the general consumer market, but I'm skeptical it will really be able to displace Eero, Google, Orbi, and other true consumer gear. One irony is that right now the early adopters of the UDM are all sophisticated Unifi users and that thing doesn't fit and looks awful in their otherwise beautiful rack porn photos they have been posting 🙂 Granted the UDM is a lot cheaper than buying the equivalent individual parts, but there are advantages to being modular too. Easier service, not losing everything if a non-critical module goes down, etc. There will always be a lively discussion between modular or integrated that goes all the way back to mainframes with terminals versus minicomputers and later PC's, so not trying to re-ignite that long standing debate, but merely point out that saving money isn't always the most significant reason to choose one over another. In the case of Unifi, both fans and users are primarily looking for new functionality. Personally, I would prefer to see some new capabilities made available, regardless of whether it is all-in-one or requires a new box. I can work around price and modularity issues, but I can't work around the lack of a critical feature. So, to bring this home, the only feature that UDM provides that doesn't exist in the current gear is the new USG router/firewall. Specifically, the UDM is rated to handle 1 Gbps speeds with full hardware speed packet analysis and intrusion processing. The current USG is only able to handles 100mbps and is severely taxed in performance at that speed. This is significant because consumer fiber and high speed home Internet connections have zoomed from 3 mbps to over 1 Gbps in many urban and metropolitan areas. Since you mentioned you don't have a USG in your current setup, I think you aren't in a good position to really understand the difference provided by the UDM versus the existing Unifi gear. I know some Unifi users prefer to use a separate router or the Ubiquiti EdgeRouter products because of these limitations and thus don't have the integrated management provided by using the USG. On a positive note, the UDM finally removes the insecure PPTP VPN protocol, but has not yet added support for OpenVPN for incoming VPN (to connect back to your home when you are away, or to use your home network as your own private VPN Internet gateway instead of a paid service), and that is a bit disappointing.

    Firewall/Router for SMB site to site VPN

    I'm interested if the Fortinet is still working well for this situation. I just searched this forum for Fortinet and found this thread. I'm actually interested in learning more about Fortinet in general. I was at a recent EdTech conference and they were everywhere. Seems like their range of products covers everything in the network, from firewalls to Access Points. They even have a phone system I'm looking into.

    Ubiq firmware issues?

    They’ve just added the opt in option in their latest beta. It defaults to opt out.

    so now comes the t40....

    How would this compare to an Intel Core i5 Ivy Bridge 3570? Mine is a full tower taking up a bit of space. Due to rebuild at some point. But this one still chugging along.
  16. already on special, I won't be putting a deal post out for it. 30% boost on the xeon cpu over my T20 but an odd beast only 3 hard drive trays, but all are sideways unlike the T20. DDR4 and displayport as upgrades. but... for "entry drives only". what is that, you say? look in the thermal specs... doesn't sound like or look like something you can cram 57 drives into with a special bracket.
  17. I will suggest you to buy Acer T272HUL this is good as well as cheap ..
  18. Hi I am running unraid, current firmware is 2013 Many thanks Roy

    Additional SSDs in Gen8 case

    Yeah, I have googled and found some pictures online of this port. I will get the floppy to SATA power cable to get going. Thanks. I am running ESXi 6.5 (U1 from memory) and the 2x 4TB disks are still uninitiated and currently set in AHCI mode, as I am not interested in running software RAID. I am hoping to pick up an E5-1265 on the cheap shortly.
  20. Which service pack do you have? What OS are you running? I would update the BIOS from the link above. iLo 2.70 https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_f13420b102cb4101ab1befc470
  21. Hi I have updated iLo but the service pack has been a nightmare, I have tried and tried all day and connot figure out how to instal it. I have access to iLo as have a licence and have updated iLo 4 to the latest for the system firmware etc is 2013. I have tried and tried to put service pack on bootable usb but seems I am failing to understand as it will not boot from the 4 USB sticks I have tried several times each. sorry guys I need an IDIOT guide step by step. Thank you K

    Doorbell Cameras

    Still havent found something that does it, I think its more in the realms of a device that you can add little bits off code for, say the doorbell rings, it tries to ping a device on the LAN, if it cant, then it goes out to whatever cloud service and pings the devices that arent in the building.. I cant be the only person to think of or need this sort of thing surely?!

    Additional SSDs in Gen8 case

    There is a SATA 3Gb/s port on the motherboard. There is a floppy disk power plug in the ODD bay, fdd power to SATA power adapters are available. What OS are you running? Is the server configured for B120i or AHCI? There is a PCIe slot if you want to add more storage options.

    Additional SSDs in Gen8 case

    Hi folks, I am looking to add a 500GB SSD drive in the ODD bay. I am open to either 2.5" or m2. What options do I have in order for disk m/board connectivity? Pls advise. P.s Microserver currently boots off a USB and there are 2x 4TB currently installed in bays 1 and 2. I am planning to add 2 similar drives later to bays 3 and 4.

    Ubiq firmware issues?

    Yes, they got into some trouble for not being up front about it. Supposedly, they are going to put an opt out button on the next release. As it stands now, it's "auto opt in" when you upgrade to the latest firmware and no way to turn it off. Their solution was to send it to null with a pi or other firewall solution. That didn't make anyone happy either. It has been tested and it looks like it only phone homes at boot and is sending very little information. So, some good news about the situation.
