Hi, when I bought the peplink 300 it was advertised as having no actual limit to the number of DNS entries it could hold, just a recommended practical limit of the number of users using its bandwidth.
I have 71 domain names in successfully, and I have enterred a 72nd domain name in and saved and working.
BUT whenever I power cycle the peplink, the 72nd domain name vanishes. Web and email stop. The client is very unhappy. I have to log back into the peplink and re-enter the 72nd domain details over again.
(I guess if I enter a 73rd etc domain name they will disappear after a power cycle also…?)
So, it appears the peplink 300 does have an actual DNS limit after all - of 71 domain names.
Although it is 4 years old, this is not a warranty issue, this is a product not handling what it was sold to be able to do.
(And that is not to mention all the numerous bugs it has - that I reported in the first month of owning it in 2007, that were never fixed, and then they stopped supporting it in 2009 - no more firmware updates - citing I just need to buy a new model. Well, I put to you, given the numerous ignored bugs in the 300, and I also have a 20L model with the same bugs that I had no choice but to remove and use a different solution, why should I hand over double my money to get what I originally paid for, with NO guarantee that those bugs will not be in the new models and that they will drop updates for the new model in a year or two also. Mostly they were just annoying bugs that a simple firware update should have fixed but in 2 years they NEVER did, but the most crippling bug is lack of SMTP authentication for SMTP Forwarding - when they KNOW SMTP Authentication is required [and knew back then] because they include SMTP Authentication in the Email Notification section, but in 2 years before they discontinued Firmware updates they NEVER added SMTP Authentication to the SMTP Forwarding service. Given that practically every ISP today requires SMTP Authentication to cut out spam, this has crippled my multi-WAN networks and I had no choice but to remove the PePlinks [after spending days and days of trying to work around the problem] and put in more expensive ISP solutions. But will PePlink refund my purchases, let alone reimburse my expenses??? No way. And now I find the 300 will not even handle more than 71 domain names. Great.
