Q: Is the router supported on legacy CloudTrax master accounts?

A. No, the router is only supported with the User Management system.

A: Custom speeds for traffic prioritization are not supported.

 

Q: Would it be possible at some point to block traffic, such as peer to peer?

A: The router does not directly support that today but may be added in the future.

 

Q: Do vlans have automatic integrations with the switches and APs vlans?

A: Yes, just like the switches it will automatically pass through the roaming VLANs built into the APs. 

  

Q: What client software is needed to connect to the VPN?

A:  Most VPN client software can be used to connect to the VPN server on the G200. OpenVPN is a common open source client software and can be used.

 

Q: What is the WAN SFP port used for?

A: SFP stands for Small Form-Factor Pluggable which can enable the router to take a fiber connection. Alternatively, a copper SFP can be used to provide a secondary copper WAN interface.

 

Q: Can we use a connector to transform the fiber port to an Ethernet port? 

A:  Yes, you can use an ethernet SFP module to connect two different ethernet connections. However the router will not aggregate the connections.

 

Q: Can the router be mounted in a standard server rack?

A: The router is not rack mountable. However, there will be a solution to this in the future.

  

Q: Does the G200 support PPPoE?

A: The G200 does not support PPPoE as of now.

 

Q: Can we connect FTTH to the fiber WAN port?

A: Theoretically you could connect FTTH to the SFP with the appropriate adapter but that might require PPPoE support, depending on how the ISP works.

 

Q: How does the VPN work?

A: The VPN is pretty easy to use. Just enable it in Cloudtrax, add a user and then download the configuration file. Then install an OpenVPN client and install the configuration and it should just work from there. Please refer to: Configuring Router User VPN

 

Q: How many VLANs can be set up simultaneously?

A: Theoretically you can do any number of VLANs from 2-4094.
