hello, I’m a recent convert to untangle after using and loving pfsense and previously trying sophos and usg.
I found the licensing option for home use at the time to be more than reasonable considering it was unlimited device’s and all features minus threat protection and virus pro…
With the recent 16.1 update came wireguard vpn (not included in home license) which stirred up some forum comments.
Something unexpected (perhaps) has happened as a result.
Untangle’s solution to these concerns was to split the Home license up into 2 options, basic and pro.
basic remains $50 but has some features removed and an device limit of 50 added.
Then for $150 you can have pro with the removed features put back in and wireguard, threat protection and virus blocker added but with a limit of 150 device’s
I assume the feature set I currently have will remain until license renewal time but I feel a this is an approach that will drive users away to PFsense, Sophos or even Unifi. Its such a shame that the key thing that allowed users who could get past the license fee stigma is now eroded and damage to the home user base is inevitable if not rethought. https://www.untangle.com/solutions/untangle-at-home/
am I just being miserable or is this a genuine mis-step / slight on the userbase?
