Hmm, it should not take so long for the configuration to apply at the device devices level. Do the devices having stable connection to the IC2 cloud ? Personal experience normally it should take 1- 2 minutes for the configuration changes applied to the device level.
Sit’s correct. IC2 should be processing the config request and pushing an update in a minute or so, depending on system load. If you’re on a stable connection and seeing times that are unusually longer than this, please submit a ticket with the device S/N and we’ll investigate.
No worries. From our end it’s easier to troubleshoot a device that is actively having issues, so whenever I see something like this I’d like to jump on it before the end-user resets his device or the logs age out of the system.
If you see it again, PM me and I’ll take a look.
Back to your main question, IC2 should handle the majority of day-to-day VPN configuration scenarios. In the end it comes down to what you’re comfortable with, whether you need a firmware-only feature, and, honestly, the size of your implementation. Device by device configuration doesn’t scale well past single-digit node counts.
We tend to use incontrol here and its a couple of mins at most to get the VPN config onto the devices, perhaps slightly longer if a remote end is cellular and only achieving 3G but nearly always within 5mins tops.
