First you tell me you dont understand my argument against using DMP in “corporate” environment, which is what I said… Then you agree with me that they are for SMB and home users (exactly what Ive said from the start). You made my point
Dont tell me DMP wasnt aimed at this segment, because thats exactly what they marketed it towards. Right on their website, the first sentenace for the DMP says “The Dream Machine Pro (UDM Pro) is an enterprise-grade UniFi OS Console that offers a scalable networking experience and comprehensive platform for multi-application use.”
This is my last post on this subject then Ill let it die… But my position stands, you dont have enough experience with DMP, its obvious by your posts. UBNT DMP and Pro4 use of LT2P VPN is horrible and unreliable! How much have you used it? Have you used it with more than 1 client setup? I have, and I received NOTHING but headaches when more than 1 client tries connecting remotely to the DMP. Failure to connect, trying to connect endlessly. It sucks, there is zero excuse to not have OpenVPN as an option. That is a no brainer and much cheaper routers have it.
You dont think useful logs are a necessity for a $469 edge device? Seriously? We prefer to spend our time quickly being able to diagnose network issues and useful logs are key to that. Time is money. Useful logs and OpenVPN are standard features in todays IT world, far from your claims of wanting 'every singe feature." If that was the case Id be looking for real threat prevention that doesnt limit bandwidth, Application Control, Web Filtering, WAN Balancing, Wireguard… but I digress
We dont use onsite UBNT controllers, especially DMP as a controller, that is also a problematic setup. Especially after firmware and controller upgrades. Hmm, where did half my devices go. I cant tell you how many times we updated device firmware within DMP unifi controller only to have them show disconnected status after upgrades… Or controller updates in DMP only to have all devices show disconnected after reboot… These symptoms were only an issue using Cloud Key’s and DMP.
I run a Vultr VM Multi-Site UNIFI controller that manages 1000’s of client UBNT devices. So simple, we SSH into them at the shop when new, send update command via ssh, send inform url for our controller via ssh, adopt in our controller then send to client site. As long as they have internet they are g2g and we have zero issues with UBNT devices dropping. Only time we had those issues was with Cloud Keys (Gen1 and Gen2) and DMP.
