The speedfusions work pretty well but occasionally we get a site go off and just won’t reconnect. - The hub balances are on fixed IPs so the remote sites always connect to the hubs. So we just want to be able to look up the site IP as the remote balance is usually up and just reboot it.
Also had an instance the other day with a site where one of our engineers was testing two lines going to a remote site. He disonnected one, then made the schoolboy error and disconnected the other so we had to phone the remote site and get a very timid user to give us a remote control session in to a local machine to get it going again.
There are just loads of reasons why we need the remote end IP addresses and the point is that the V5.4 firmware used to work just fine with our dns provider. All it needs is a simple modification to the firmware again so it does not expect a hostname, we should not have to change providers and jump through hoops because a feature has been broken.
As mentioned as well I have an open ticket (#743505) because peplink have removed the standard IP-MIB from the V6.1 firmware so we can’t get interface IPs via snmp standard methods. I was told to use the peplink specific MIB but that doesn’t give IP addresses either. I have chased this ticked but have received no response in 10 days about it now. We’ve invested heavily in the balance products and like them very much on the whole, but can’t understand why such a simple and arguably essential function is unavailable when almost anything else that supports SNMP will.
At the end of the day we don’t care how we get the remote end interface IPs, be it dynamic dns, snmp or something else but nothing works currently and that just isn’t acceptable as everything else on our networks I can get a remote IP address for.
