Hello all! I’m currently running a Cradlepoint IBR 1700 and having no end of firmware problems that they seem unable to fix, so I’m looking at switching to a Peplink device, likely a BR1 Pro.
One thing that appears to be missing on the Peplink device is an openVPN client. The router is on our boat, on which we switch back and forth between several SIM cards from the standard providers, running heavy NAT and no static IP. I’ve been using OpenVPN to connect to my on-land home network, which is on Comcast with a dynamic IP (through a dynamic dns service to map to a hostname as it changes), and it’s been working great for a year now. I’d like to be able to do the same with the Peplink in some capacity. All of the OUTGOING VPN from the Peplink appears to unfortunately require site-to-site, with a static IP on the boat side, which is never going to happen. Is there some other solution that I’m not seeing in the spec pages that would let me do this? I’m running a Linux-based NAS at home to host the VPN, so I can set up a variety of different VPN options, depending on what I might be able to cajole the Peplink into doing.
