RED: Dedicate UTM as RED Device
It would be VERY useful to have an Option to activate an ASG as RED-Device (also known as RED-Hub-Mode). ASG works as RED-Device/Client.
ASG connects directly to another ASG using RED-function. Thus you can share SAME Networks at different Locations and bandwith is only limited by ASG and not to 30 MBit/s of a RED-Device without the need for an additional device.
After an hardware upgrade (for exemple : ASG220v1 to ASG220v4, because a memory limit), we have a few unused devices. It would be great to install the RED firmware and use this old device with the RED's limited functionalities
UTM may be used as a RED client, allowing it to function in the manner requested here.
Hi. To avoid confusion, this feature is NOT in UTM v9. The requester is asking for the ability to "convert" an ASG into a dedicated RED.
While we have added site-to-site VPN using RED technology, the feature as described is not yet committed to a version, thus its correct that it remains open. You still need to setup the rest of ASG and otherwise configure it as with a normal site-to-site VPN when using the new RED protocol.
