Been two weeks with the Balance One in our 25 person office and so far pretty good… we currently have a 10MB symmetrical EOC line that is less than desirable and it seems like we max out the bandwidth every once in a while which causes little throughput. Fortunately next week we get a new 50MB symmetrical fiber line installed so I am looking forward to seeing how the Balance One handles it.
I’m setting up PPTP User accounts for members of the team so they can access the file server from outside the office. Everyone has one password that has been assigned to them to access their email and I wish to use the same passwords for them for accessing the VPN. Problem is some special characters are disallowed and there seems to be a 12 character maximum for password.
Any chance the next firmware version is addressing this?
If not is it recommended to have just one account that people use? perhaps an alternative method?
